The Higher Education Committee has been working on a wiki project for the last two years. It has expanded significantly since its first inception; the wiki format was ideal for growth.
One week prior to the meeting, we made our project live! It will soon be available via the ACRL web site, but I'm pleased to provide the address here for a preview. Topics included in the wiki are:
"At the 2008 ALA Midwinter Meetings in Philadelphia, PA, the Higher Education committee elected to utilize a Wiki for it's newest project, a Wiki and/or web page resource committed to supporting librarians new to working with Higher Education faculty and practitioners/administrators. This resource will be largely, but not limited to, Internet resources. Entries will include a brief supportive annotation describing significance, sponsorship, and other information as deemed necessary." -- EBSS Higher Education Wiki
- Curriculum Materials Centers
- Distance Education
- News Sources for Higher Education
- Promotion and Tenure
- Scholarship of Teaching and Learning
- Services to Administrators
- Statistics and Data Resources
I was particularly pleased to have the Curriculum Materials Centers page, it came in handy when preparing the collection and budget for the new AU Columbus Center IRC. At this point, I am not sure if there are plans to open the wiki for comments and/or additional submissions (feel free to submit recommendations as blog comments). Time will tell. Sad to see the wiki "completed," are they ever really finished, other projects are in the works for this committee.
