TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
I agree with whoever said to ask the recruiter what the term means to him or
her. I work for a bank. We maintain a 1,000+ page manual which (long ago in a
galaxy far far away) was named the Branch Reference Manual. It includes
policies, procedures, screen definitions, and just about anything else that
branch personnel need to know to do their jobs. This is far different from the
other definitions given, so I'd check it out.

If you can remain calm, you
just don't have all the facts.
