Help the librarians…
We need proofreaders! Digital processing of books is still a difficult task because errors other than those of the author can be introduced. Proofreading consists in:
Tracking misspellings, grammar errors, misprints…
Correcting any error (page interchange, caption misplaced, layout…).
Comparing with the original to make the copy as identical as possible, except the author's errors and the possible corrections that he published.
NB: It is a long and heavy work. Do it only if you are sure to conclude! Its is better to proofread carefully a few pages than to proofread badly the whole book.
You find a mistake (or several…)
NB: Knowledge progress since the work was published may prove that the author was wrong. This is not a “mistake” that deserves correction however.
