Research and Publishing As an Archivist: Publishing As A Co-Author is a case study documenting the presenter's experience as a co-author in writing for a professional publication as an archivist. He discusses the steps he and his co-author took in researching a successfully-published article about the usability of online finding aids and their efforts in publishing, initially, a hard-copy processing manual, and later an electronic book. The topics include why they felt the manual was needed, the collaboration between the authors, the reactions of the publication board to their proposal and initial chapters, the Board's recommendations which drove the project, and the rationale for the authors' final shift to a case study approach, which continues to this day.
