At least I was paid for a week's worth of work.

My name is listed in the acknowledgment section of a science protocols book where the authors thank me for assistance and advice. The sections that I wrote ended up being reduced to a few sentences, and I was not listed as an author despite a promise of inclusion. Would it be appropriate to include that on my otherwise skimpy CV, or would that be considered tacky?

My official title is "Systems Engineer" which (to me) is so broad of a title that dozens of different positions actually fall under this category. Let me list some of my actual responsibilities and ask you for a more accurate job title. [more inside]
