Guide to Reference looking for editors

Reference-type people who are looking to add experience (no money, but a discount for your institution to subscribe to GtR) to their resumes:

From an email forwarded to me:
The Guide to Reference (http://www.guidetoreference.org/) is looking for a few good editors to select and review sources. Two-year commitment preferred. These are volunteer positions, but editors’ institutions will receive a discount on their annual subscription to the Guide and editors receive annual letters commending their contributions.

Please consider this opportunity to contribute to a tool that instructs LIS students and reference staff, and assists with immediate reference and chat queries.
