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.
We keep only the sign-off sheets in a file. One copy of the paper document is
placed in a central library (unless the material is considered too sensitive to
have in an unsecured area.) Electronic documents are placed on our Intranet,
with or without password protection. Sensitive documents aren't published on the
Intranet. Sign-out typically consists of an email or spoken message like "Hey,
I'm working on 8.3 in the BRM, everyone leave it alone please." Seriously. It's
a small department.
