A colleague at IMCPL called me just a few minutes ago to chat about wikis. It was kind of fun to talk to another librarian about what works, what doesn’t, and to generally learn together about the kinds of tools we have to make life easier.
At ACPL we use PBwiki. Not only is it the home of the Digital Collaborative online, but also ACPL other committees collaborate there: we have used the wiki to roll out Overdrive, Pay for Print, Learning 2.0 and E*vents.
Another strategy has been to use Google Documents to collaboratively produce documents. This is useful when you need to edit, delete and otherwise update documents in a word processor environment. People can individually edit a document and save it where others go online and edit it, instead of everyone edits it separately and e-mails the document back and forth.
Another useful tool that’s out there is Wikimatrix.org, which helps you choose which wiki is best for you.
