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.
It was the first time that we did this and I didn't care either way.
However.... there are 6 books in our doc set and I can never remember who wrote what (we had 5 writers on the project). So if someone has feedback about a particular book, having the writer's names in there makes it easy to track down who to talk to.

The only time I've had my name on a book was when the sign-off page was
stapled to the front at one of my old (government) jobs.
I'm asking because an engineer on my team wants me to put his name down to
credit him for docs that he's worked on. These are all internal IT
Anyone have any info on this?
Thanking you in advance.
