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 want to begin by saying to everyone that sent me so much useful
information about my Style Guides question - particularly Dan Hall and
Jean Weber. As I'm sure is painfully obvious, I am new to the Newsgroup.
Now for my next enquiry - a big part of my job is 'librarian' of all our
internal documentation, mostly in softcopy format, and also the
technical reference books that are passed on to me - such as hardware
and software that we purchase and use. Our library is in a pretty bad
state and I am doing what I can with it, but in general, it is not being
used as it should and is viewed as kind of a nuisance to those that try
to use it (no fault of my own, I'd like to add).
So I would like to hear what other people use in their company and what
the format is for 'checking in' documentation. Currently we are using an
application called PVCS Tracker, but I believe that will be changing to
CCC/Harvest. I could explain the process we are using, but this note is
lengthy enough as is. Generally, I just want to get some ideas on how to
improve our library and make it less painful.
