What is a wiki?

A Wiki is a Web site that allows its visitors to easily add, remove, and otherwise edit and change its content.

Why use a wiki?

Wikis can be excellent tools for communication and collaboration. Anyone who logs in can edit pages, making it easy to share thoughts and insights, track projects and work flows, and develop ideas as a group.

This wiki was originally set up for Metadata and Digital Initiatives personnel and others involved with the Digital Media Repository. It facilitates collaboration on DMR projects and provides a central location to document procedures, work flows, and standards related to these projects.

If you think this might also help you and your coworkers, feel free to create an account and start creating or editing pages.
