Single Sourcing for Beginners

I'm often asked for good resources on writing modular documentation for single-sourcing, chunking, and reuse. It's a learned skill, and a task that takes planning and effort, but can be immensely valuable.

This is by no means an exhaustive list, and has some Information Architecture and Schema development resources thrown in for good measure...

If you want an exhaustive list, visit:

There is also a course/book called Information Mapping that is good for getting authors to think about writing self-contained information objects, too.

For DocBook newbies, I'd recommend: Norm Walsh's Tutorials and, of course, DocBook: The Definitive Guide.

For those of you in the industry, what do you recommend?
