Wikipedia is awesome even though it's not a very strong source due to the nature of a wiki. There is a danger of biased information being used on a Wiki which might misrepresent a topic. For students or anyone using it, that's not so good. After looking at the suggested wikis on learn & play, some of them seemed outdated/abandoned. I think the perfect application for our library might be to make a wiki with all of the fiction pathfinders we use to help patrons. Instead of burying them in the group work, opening it up for staff to edit might generate more varied suggestions. I liked the subject guide the St. Joseph county one used , it seemed very useful.
