"Maybe," a member of our editorial board said, "we just haven't invited the people who run websites -- often the people who know technical communication best -- to link to our site."
So. If you have a website and would like to encourage your readers to read more fully in the field, we'd like to ask you to add a link to the TC Library, a banner, or an RSS feed from our site on your personal or your organization's website. Please include the phrase "technical communication", "technical writing", or "tech comm" (or some combination of the three) in the text of your link. That'll help raise our Google PageRank (we're told), which may help Google to realize how many people actually use our site.
If you already run a site, then you likely already know how to write the (X)HTML code to add such a link. Even with the increasing quality of WYSIWYG editors and CMSes, we'd never imply that you didn't. But our experience with usability and user-centered design tells us that it's never a bad idea to supply easily-clippable HTML code that, when copied into your website, will link your site to ours. So please feel free to copy the code from one of the sample interfaces below, or modify one of these to suit your website's design.
<a href="http://tc.eserver.org/" title="A comprehensive portal to online resources in professional, scientific and technical communication (including technical writing).">EServer Technical Communication Library</a>
(Can link to any of the thousands of categories within our site. Use 'http://tc.eserver.org/dir/' and then your favorite phrase, using hyphens to replace any spaces in the URL. For example: http://tc.eserver.org/dir/Technical-Writing or http://tc.eserver.org/dir/XML)
If you run a blog, aggregator, or website that can use our RSS 2.0 (Really Simple Syndication) XML feeds, consider using our approximately 25,000 feeds, which list all items in any directory, author, or publisher listing.
Or, if you wish, you can access the feed from any popular RSS aggregator, including these:
The code to embed a table in your page that always displays the most recently-added works in the TC Library to your page has many configuration options: you can align the column left or right, control the fonts and sizes, display the abstracts or not, and control how many items to display. Fill out a form that computes the code you want to embed in your page, formatted to your preferences.
