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. Wiki Research toola, 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.
