Content / Collaboration: UBC Wiki, WordPress, & Library Integration
On November 18, 2010, I was invited to present an overview of the UBC Wiki as part of the UBC Library Systems and Information Technology Brown Bag Lecture Series. My goal for the presentation was highlight how the wiki is a tool that can be used for collaboration not only between people but also but also between information systems. The wiki presents an opportunity for the library (or anyone) to collaborate on content with the larger UBC Community, as well as allow other members of the community to republish and redistribute library content across platforms (from e-books to websites) allowing for their information to reach a greater audience and have a larger impact.
In addition to myself, Cynthia Ng spoke about how the library is using the wiki (her section starts at slide 30).
