A powerful wiki

One of the reasons why I’m a fan of wikis is typically the end result.  Unlike other authoring tools, your typical wiki isn’t fancy looking with all the eye candy bells and whistles.  Instead, it’s all about the content.

You’ll find a perfect example, as well as an incredible resource, at the HLWIKI.

So, what is it?

What is HLWIKI? …an open, free-to-use global encyclopedia with ten (10) portals on health librarianshipsocial media and a range of information technology topicscurated by a team of international health librarians

I’ll admit that I came for the “information technology” topics.  In particular, it was “net neutrality” as it applies to Canada and Canadians.

I stayed for that and for everything else that this wiki has to offer.  You’ll find the connections so valuable for librarians.
