Wikis, creative commons and intellectual property

I decided that I would have to create a wiki for my new college.  So I copied and pasted across the pages that I wanted from our own Wikidlinks.  this work included my own, Tricia’s and thegroovylibrarian’s.  We also link directly to

This brought up the issue as to how this should be acknowledged particularly some of Tricia’s policy work.  In my view wikis are a collaborative tool but I needed to acknowledge others work.  Tricia noted that the work that we had done was the intellectual property of the school.  So we have branded our pages on wikidlinks something I will do at MUFY.

I also decided to link my pages from the MUFYlibrary wiki directly back to wikidlinks and have placed a button on that site to take students back to MUFYlibrary.  I have invited Tricia, my Head of Library and my colleague Glenda to join my wiki.
