We've had success with wikis internally and there's been some demand for them around the University, so we're splitting this out into its own project.
We should acknowledge at this stage that we have not gone out to departments explicitly to ascertain demand and the likely use of a Wiki. I am not suggesting we do this, as experience suggests asking users their views on new technologies they mostly have no experience of produces little in the way of useful feedback. (I know Wikis are not new to us, but they will be to most of our users.) Sometime soon we need to involve some people outside of BUCS in discussions and awareness of our work on Wikis - Dave Cunningham.
I have spoken to the Library web team and UKOLN about their use of wikis in the past few weeks. I agree we need to involve more people. - Phil Wilson
