So What's In a Wiki?

I see a wiki being a great idea for subject guides, readers' advisory tools and more. For example, instead of one person creating a readalike list for an author, we could use a wiki to share the responsibility. Different people have different specialities or interests. Using all our professional brains would create something even more beneficial for customers. Much like Fiction-L listervs we could create a TCCL wiki featuring readalikes and thematic fiction. At this point, I'm a little apprehensive about opening up any type of TCCL wiki content to patrons. We would need to develop a protocol for their sharing process. But I think we could easily utilize wikis to create webpage content through staff.

Has anyone ever used WikiSpaces?
