I started the year working for employer A and contributed $2K to a 401(k). I'm now working at employer B. Am I responsible for ensuring that my contributions to this second 401(k) do not exceed $8K?

I believe you are. Things may have changed but that was the rule when I did tax prep work for Block and later for VITA.

I have no idea which publication to check. I'd start with Pub 17, it is the one publication that has something of value on every topic for the individual. Your question may be too specialized for it but it would help point you toward what other publication to download.
