Transcript

  • 1. CURRENT WIKI USE IN LIBRARIES
    • In-house for staff, usually password-protected
    • Focused on professional development & sharing resources
    • Does not generally involve patrons, though it’s meant to enhance service
    • Below are examples of how school libraries in the U.S. use wikis with patrons
    • School library wiki examples can be applied to all types of libraries
    • BENEFITS OF USING WIKIS WITH PATRONS
      • Allows patrons to add resources, which enhances the knowledge base
      • Provides global access to content, thereby serving more than the immediate community
      • Enables patrons to discuss books and media with others
      • Encourages participation in library activities and presence on the web
      • Creates a collaborative learning environment, in which patrons feel connected to their library
    Wikis Connect the World Library 2.0 Technology to Overcome Physical Barriers Natalie Sapkarov [email_address] Graduate School of Library and Information Science University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign United States of America FOCUS ON LIBRARY 2.0 – GET PATRONS INVOLVED! RESEARCH/SUBJECT GUIDE WIKIS READER’S ADVISORY WIKIS READING PROMOTION WIKIS LIBRARY WEBSITES AS WIKIS
    • Compose genre guides of popular fiction and nonfiction for patron population
    • Provide links to booklists and bibliographies
    • Example (to right): University Laboratory High School in Urbana, IL has a Recommended Reads wiki with genre lists, links to booklists, and spaces for students to add their own favorites. http://unihighlib.pbwiki.com
    • Create research/subject guides based on patron needs and interests
      • School libraries: Curriculum-based, specific to an assignment
      • Public libraries: Local history, frequently-used resources, “new to town” guide, etc.
      • Academic libraries: Common research questions and topics
    • Example (to left): Westmont Junior High School in Westmont, IL has a wiki devoted to providing resources to teachers, students, and parents on a variety of topics. https://westmontwiki.wikispaces.com/
    • Provide links to review sites, author blogs, local bookstores, e-book resources, local book clubs, local and national reading initiatives, book discussion forums, book-related media, etc.
    • Example (to right): Joyce Valenza of Springfield Township High School in Erdenheim, PA has a Book Leads wiki aimed at teens to engage them in all types of reading and reading-related activities. http://bookleads.wikispaces.com/
    • Migrate static webpages to a wiki instead
    • Able to set permissions for which pages can be edited by the public
    • Example (to left): Monarch Academy Library in Oakland, CA uses a wiki instead of a website to promote their library, services, and materials. This K-5 school has limited content that can be edited by students, but allows teachers to participate. http://monarchlibrary.wikispaces.com
