  • Transcript

    • 1. Wikis for Research & Scholarship Stewart Brower, MLIS, AHIP Library Director, OU-Tulsa
    • 2. Defining Web 2.0
      • Tim O'Reilly and John Battelle summarized key principles they believed characterized Web 2.0 applications
        • the Web as a platform
        • data as the driving force
        • an architecture of participation
        • open source development
        • content and service syndication
        • the end of the software adoption cycle ("the perpetual beta ")
        • leveraging the power of The Long Tail
        • Adopted from “Web 2.0” entry on Wikipedia
    • 3. Web 2.0 transitions
      • Information silos  Information sharing
      • Designed  Customizable
      • “ One to Many”  “Many to Many”
      • (publication)  (conversation)
      • Authority  Consensus
      • (i.e. “The Wisdom of Crowds”)
    • 4. Web 2.0 technologies
      • Conversation: Blogs
      • Syndication: RSS
      • Consensus: Wikis
      • Sharing: Social bookmarking
      • Only the tip of the iceberg…
    • 5. Consensus: Wikis
      • A type of website that allows the visitors themselves to easily add, remove and otherwise edit and change some available content, sometimes without the need for registration
      • Ease of interaction and operation makes a wiki an effective tool for collaborative authoring
      • The open philosophy of most wikis—of allowing anyone to edit content—does not ensure that editors are well intentioned
      • Adopted from “Wiki” entry on Wikipedia
    • 6. Editing wikis
      • Wikis represent consensus over authority -- the knowledge of many people is considered more valuable and correct than the knowledge of any one person, even an expert
      • Wikis like Wikipedia still rely on the valuable input of experts to correct errors and improve the value of the resource
      • In an article in Nature (12.15.2005), Wikipedia was compared to Encyclopedia Britannica and found to be about as accurate in articles on the sciences
      • Wikis use a slightly different markup than the web, but it’s easy to learn – most wikis include a toolbar to help with this
    • 7. Wiki farms Easy to use, limited tools at no cost… Both Y/N Wikispaces Good tools, page locking, public/private Free Yes Wetpaint Easy to use, read-only access (premium to hide pages) Both No PBWiki Limited tools, no login req’d, no private pages Free No BluWiki Usability Cost Ads Farm
    • 8. Other wikis to know
      • Medicine Portal – Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portal:Medicine
      • Wikibooks – Health Sciences http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Medicine
      • Medical wikis – David Rothman http://davidrothman.net/list-of-medical-wikis /
    • 9. Thanks for coming!
