Thing #16 Learn about wikis

Wiki's are interesting. I looked at SJCPL Subject Guides. Useful for finding information and is easy to update with changes. For example under cooking they have a holiday cooking "display". One problem I have with Wiki's are that anyone can change (some) of them. Without someone checking the information, you can never be sure it's correct. Many of the library ones I looked at could only be changed by staff, so I like those. Or even having the general public add reviews is fine as long as the main information is presented by an authoritative source.
