ProofreadingFaculty & Staff Resources

The unit liaison will have the opportunity to review the publication at various stages in production. The final responsibility for proofing a publication — text as well as graphics — rests with the originating office.

Client offices are encouraged to take this step seriously. If errors are discovered after the publication is printed, client offices must assume the cost of reprinting the document unless the error was made by the printer. Communications has no budget to cover such contingencies.

To facilitate this process, it is important that the manuscript given to the Office of Communications be complete and as error-free as possible, and that all questions or potential problems be raised as early as possible in the production process. Any changes once the manuscript copy is submitted to Communications, to graphics/layout once production has begun, or to the printer to be printed, will result in delays and, potentially, additional costs.
