Using a Wiki for Collaboration and Coordination Using a Wiki for Collaboration and Coordination Presentation Transcript

  • Using a Wiki for Collaboration and Coordination by Connie Crosby Crosby Group Consulting based on a webinar presented to the Association of Independent Information Professionals (AIIP) August 26, 2010
  • Who am I? Former law firm library manager now consulting in: • social media strategy • information management • knowledge management
  • A Tale of Two Conferences
  • Northeast Regional Law Libraries Meeting 2007 (“NE2007”)
  • NE2007 • formal conference • numerous concurrent speaker sessions • international (U.S. & Canada) • hotel booked 3 1/2 years in advance • large committees, geographically dispersed
  • PodCamp Toronto 2007
  • PodCamp Toronto • informal “unconference” • numerous concurrent speaker sessions • international (Canada & U.S.) • university space booked 3 1/2 months in advance • a few key organizers
  • Guess what??.....
  • Both used wikis!
  • Private organizers’ wiki
  • • each committee had its own main page • during conference calls, everyone referred to wiki • meeting notes/decisions written directly into wiki • significantly reduced email • kept everyone “in the loop”
  • Committee pages = work space
  • Public organization wiki
  • • crowdsourced event! • registration = add your name to the list • giving a session = add session to the list • scheduling = add your session to the schedule skeleton • content created added to wiki (presentations, photos, audio, video)
  • PCTO wiki circa 2009
  • Have we abandoned the wiki?
