About Me

Jan Rennie

I have worked in a variety of library settings over the last 15 years. These included special libraries, academic libraries, and public libraries. In these jobs, I've done the following:

Edited all varieties of print and online materials
Conducted online research
Managed online database and website content
Catalogued books, CDs, DVDs, kits, and other materials
Set up a library from scratch
Created procedures manuals and how-to guides

I am also comfortable with a variety of different online research databases (such as AMICUS and WorldCat) and have created and managed website content (for the Men's Health Initiative of BC) using a content management system (CMS).

I've received independent confirmation from various sources that my editorial, writing, and proofreading skills are up to the task (see the "Testimonials" page for more details). I have an excellent command of the current conventions used in the American Psychological Association (APA) style and have experience with the Modern Language Association (MLA) style, Vancouver style, and Chicago style (including Turabian).

I have summarized, proofread, and edited scientific and technical material (including InspireHealth's Research Updates, as well as scientific literature to be published by Spandidos Publications). I have also edited several theses (Organizational Leadership Projects, or OLPs) for students in the Master of Arts in Leadership program at Royal Roads University, and Organizational Consulting Projects (OCPs) for students in the Master of Business Administration in Executive Management at Royal Roads University, as well as PhD dissertations for students at the University of British Columbia (UBC) in both the Arts and Science faculties. As well, I've created and edited promotional material (flyers, grant proposals, magazine articles, etc.) for various clients.
