  • New ways to organize content!
  • It’s an Information Jungle out there! History of Pathfinders: In the 70s we created them in print. I suspect some of us still do. In the 90s we began publishing pathfinders as html web pages. Now, I am convinced that wikis and other collaborative tools (like PageFlakes and NetVibes, and LibGuides, and GoogleSites, etc.) are the way to go. Joyce Valenza
