I recommend the book, "Interviewing Practices for Technical Writers", by
Earl E. McDowell, Baywood Publishing Company, Inc., Amityville, NY, 1991.
The publisher's toll-free number is 800-638-7819.

These main topcs are listed in the table of contents:

The Interviewing Process
Fundamentals of Interviewing
Informational Interviews (information gathering and information giving)
Employment Cycle Interviews
Internal and External Interviews (problem solving and peruasive)

It also reviews five articles on interviewing.
