Proposed Wiki Design Elements
by Jane's committee on how to use the wiki
- Our approach is to create 2 new pages and add links to & from other existing pages
Material to be added to the wiki
1. Beginning Research tips & tricks
2. Beginning Editing/writing for the wiki
3. Add a blurb on the front page that links to the "What the wiki is, and isn't" , with links from that page back to the main wiki page and to basic research tips and editing/contribution tips. It is essential to all users to know the scope of the wiki.
