As I stated in my past post, there is a use for Wiki as part of the answer not the full can complete source. I was amazed to see things posted from 2000 which I didn't even know that Wiki was in use until 2003 very interesting. I would think the best use in the Library for Wiki is a piece of the pie
I'll make some comments on Wikipedia: Maybe I'm too new to technology but...I had no idea that Wikipedia was not actually a "reliable" source of informtion. I didn't quite get the fact that the average joe was actually doing posts to that. I think that could be a problem with not knowing what is true a not true. Kinda like depending on a Page to give the same type of information as a Librarian. Both have a different wealth of knowledge and they both have an answer.
Delicious: It is an excellent tool to use for my own information gathering. I can/cannot see the use of this for the general "reference" question. It seems like if I use this I'd be bookmarking so much stuff on the single servcie point computers and everyone else would too. Maybe I don't fully understand bookmarking.
