    • 18. Questions to consider
      2/10/2009
      Katie Jones
      Who will edit this wiki? Is editing restricted?
      Who will be able to read the wiki? Any member of the public, only those associated with your library, or something in between?
      Will users be able to add comments to the wiki? Will it serve as a forum to discuss library policy, or should policy discussions take place outside the wiki?
    • 19. Questions to consider
      2/10/2009
      Katie Jones
      Should the information be organized in many pages, or just a few?
      How will users be trained to read and/or edit the wiki? Will your users need a WYSIWYG editor?
      Is tracking revisions important?
    • 20. Questions to consider
      2/10/2009
      Katie Jones
      Where should the wiki reside? Does it need to be on an internal server or can it be hosted remotely?
      Does the wiki need to look like the library's website?
      Do you need to upload document or media files?
      Are you able to pay for a wiki application?
    • 21. Homework
      2/10/2009
      Katie Jones
      Explore a few of the listed library wikis and write about the different ways you could use wikis in your library. Post your reflections on the "Suggestions" page.  Be sure to add your name after your answer.
      Examine the listed wiki tools or Wikimatrix. Which application would you choose to implement for your library and why? Post your reflections on the GetOnTheBus Wyoming Wiki "Wiki Applications" page. Be sure to add your name after your answer.
    • 22. Optional
      2/10/2009
      Katie Jones
      Optional -- Create a wiki covering any subject. Possible topics could be:
      A policy or procedures manual
      A research guide, such as how to locate items for county or city history
      How-to guides for office and Web 2.0 technologies
      Track electronic resources information such as contacts and license terms
      Optional -- Invite at least three other people to edit your wiki.
      Did the edits make sense? Did they help the content?
      Were your users able to easily work with the wiki application?
      What do you like about the wiki applications? What would make it easier to use?
