Originally presented Thursday, December 6, 2012 with Ellyssa Kroski presenting.
Setting up a centralized knowledge base for your library can be a great way to collaboratively brainstorm ideas, gather specialized knowledge, organize instructional resources, and even replace intranets. Creating a private, personal knowledge base will keep you organized, store your files, and provide an online space for brainstorming, reading lists, project ideas, to-do lists, and even travel plans. Learn how to create your own personal and organizational repositories of information and knowledge with no technical skills required!
