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.
You can begin to get something together about content management and
have not a lot to show . . .
. . . or, you can produce work and documents and get good references and
resume padding. That is, I like your plan to use the tools you have to
do work and deliver product. You don't have the experience or time to
get the larger, project-management research project done . . ..
> I've joined a company as an intern and will be

> The company wants me to prepare technical documents

That doesn't sound like a content-management voyage of discovery to me.
> At this stage, I am preparing notes taken from my

> documents will be prepared in Microsoft Word. My

> To start with, I might use Access or Excel to

> path, filename, date content created, revision date,
> version, content owner,
> images used etc. Is this a right approach to begin
