This wiki was created to be a one-stop shop for great ideas and information for all types of librarians. All over the world, librarians are developing successful programs and doing innovative things with technology that no one outside of their library knows about. There are lots of great blogs out there sharing information about the profession, but there is no one place where all of this information is collected and organized.

That's what we're trying to do. If you've done something at your library that you consider a success, please write about it in the wiki or provide a link to outside coverage. This wiki is not run by any commercial entity and does not represent any commercial interests. Anyone who wants to add to or edit topics on the wiki can do it.
