  • Hi, I’m Susan Seifried and I’m going to talk about a wiki’s role within a Special Library.
  • I’d like start off by giving the definition of what a special library is…
  • And Ironically, I found a great definition on Wikipedia, and I thought that it would be great to use a definition from the site that has contributed the most to the wikis popularity….

  • Conclusions: The Relationship between Wikis and Special Libraries
    Special libraries can facilitate the transaction of information within and between project groups and providing reference services within those groups
    They can disseminate information on an organization or department wide level, and can provide a forum to allow for feedback.
    In-house libraries can play a special role with the development, moderation and archiving of a wiki within their organization.
