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 might be interested in our department's "Guide for Writers." It is a
style guide for our technical writers that includes sections on grammar,
terminology, tagging, graphics, etc... It includes most of the things we
want our writers to know about document development.
I have always thought that it (and others like it) would be a beneficial
addition to a course reading list.

Subject: Texts for Manuals Writing Course
Date: Wednesday, March 16, 1994 8:40AM
This fall I am teaching a course in writing technical manuals. I am very
disappointed with the "textbooks" on the subject and am interested in
looking at the tradebooks available. Does anyone have any favorite books
on the subject that might serve the purpose?
