Wikis….. what to say? I have known about them for a long time, but never used/made one until a year ago for a library class. I made one about turning an old sweater into a pillow. fun fun fun.

Moving on… We have a staff wiki here at Hankin. We have la lot of useful things on it, such as the schedule and meeting room policy. It is very handy to use the wiki to find the important documents instead of hunting for it on the s drive.

I really liked St. Joseph County Public Library’s wiki. It is using the technology in a different way than we are. We use it as an internal staff resource; they use their wiki as a way to provide pathfinders for the public. I liked their craft pathfinder and I think it would be great if we could start something similar for new craft books. I wish that our library system had crochet magazines like them….
