The Biz Wiki and Biz Blog from Ohio U.

Chad Boeninger, Reference & Instruction Librarian at the Alden Library Ohio University Libraries, created a biz wiki to "experiment with an alternative form delivery of library information."

Chad comments, "Traditionally, recommended library resources are listed in subject guides or pathfinders. I have three subject guides that cover business information resources: one for General Business, one for International Business, and one for Marketing. While these Research Guides contain good information, they are difficult to update, as they are three separate html pages. In addition, they are not the most interesting things to read, are not searchable, and contain duplicated information. As a result, it can often take some time to find the best resource to use when consulting these traditional research guides for help. This wiki might be a good alternative to the traditional research guide format, and could perhaps compliment the business blog quite nicely."

If you know of other librarian created wikis/blogs, let us know!
