The Reference Wiki
It seems like I’ve been spending most of my time moaning and groaning about the new web site lately. I have neglected to mention our new Reference Wiki which rolled out several months ago. It has gone amazingly well and our Reference Assistants have spent several hours adding their own information. Our original plan was to provide information from our special areas of expertise for the wiki. So far, our subject expert in the area of health and medicine has written up guidelines for these topics and added it to the wiki, and I have done the same thing for local history and genealogy. The hope is that other librarians will do the same thing.
Information in the wiki is a valuable reminder to all of us who have been working here for years as well as a new reference resource for our Reference Assistants. Seeing this tool up and being used is very gratifying to me at a time when I’m being SO frustrated by progress on the new web site!
