Welcome to the Documentation Space
UBC manuals, guides, and support documentation
created by UBC students, staff and faculty.


The Documentation namespace is the primary space on the UBC Wiki for posting, organizing, and collaborating on support documentation, user manuals, help guides and other similar content. Don't hesitate to ask questions and to experiment in the Sandbox. The Documenation space is designated with the prefix Documentation:.
Convert your documentation materials into books with the Book Tool

Wikis are widely used for documentation as they allow colleagues to collaborate, update, and centrally store manuals and guides. Wikis work well for this purpose as there is no need to continually send out updated files to individual colleagues. As soon as you update your wiki pages, everyone who accesses those pages will have access to the most current information. Likewise, the open nature of wikis allow anyone who has new information to update the documentation. Just remember, this space is, like the rest of UBC wiki, wide open to anyone at UBC to write and to anyone else in the world to read. Please see Help:Contents for more information on using the UBC Wiki.
