Wiki, Wiki, Wiki

Workshop Description:

In this workshop, librarians will learn how to use wikis.


Our goal of this workshop is to teach librarians how to use wikis. The librarians will learn all of the components of a wiki. They will learn how to effectively and efficiently write on a wiki, leave messages in the discussion tab, and check the history of the work done a wiki. Librarians will also learn how to prevent wiki wars, the deleting of the work that a person has done on a wiki.


Shirley will insert the time of this.
