Library Instruction Wiki

Library Instruction Wiki. Or in the words in the logo, stop reinventing the wheel...

This appears to be a fairly new wiki. Obviously, it is intended to help librarians share library instruction tips.

The site description reads, "Welcome to the Oregon Library Instruction Wiki, a collaboratively developed resource for librarians involved with or interested in instruction. All librarians and others interested in library instruction are welcome and encouraged to contribute."

There are currently sections under development for handouts and tutorials, teaching tips, class specific handouts, bibliography, and a glossary of library instruction slang.

Visitors are encouraged to contribute. Editing at a Wiki is rather easy to do once you master the basic concepts and there is a new user page which has directions for getting started.

Wikis are started and then are left dead all the time. I hope this one grows and thrives.
