dc.description.abstract The Mediawiki platform is the heart of the successful open-access encyclopedia Wikipedia; however, it is also an exciting open-source software platform for online publishing. At Florida State University we have bundled Mediawiki into our electronic resource access strategy to enable custom content that supports online training and information literacy objectives. This presentation will cover basic setup for the Mediawiki software platform and will demonstrate how FSU has customized the installation to suit our needs. This will include materials on training librarians in the use of Mediawiki as an extension of electronic resource finding aids as well ideas for embedding Mediawiki published content within other online library resources such as SFX, Metalib, and our Electronic Resource Management System. Learning outcomes: Participants will understand the capabilities of Mediawiki as a digital publishing tool Participants will understand how Mediawiki can be embedded in their own electronic resource strategy for their users. Participants will understand how a wiki can enable public services staff to better utilize electronic resources. en
