Week 7 - Working with the Wiki

Unfortunately, the ACL Wiki has a number of broken links, otherwise it could serve as an effective hub for information and feedback - any chance of fixing that? Wikis are incredibly user-friendly and can be a great vehicle for exchanging information, whether with patrons or among library staff themselves. Some of the applications I found include:
Community Info & Guides
Libary & Information Science Topics
Library Web Sites
Project Management
Staff Manuals & Service Point Manuals
Subject Guides, Course Guides & Resource Guides

One I especially enjoyed looking at was the albystaff wiki from Albany County Public Library, reading about their circulation procedures and comparing them to ACL's.

Added my blog to the ACL PB Wiki, along with a recommendation for favourite holiday destination - Petra, Jordan.
