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 http://cooltoolsforschools.wikispaces.com/

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.
