Michael Angeles has written an article on using wikis for documentation and collaborative authoring. To quote:
Documentation may help to ensure efficiency, continuity and consistency in library operations. Library technical staff might consider the use of collaborative publishing software for documenting their internal processes and procedures. Wiki software for collaborative web publishing has emerged as one of the viable and inexpensive options to consider for maintaining group documentation. There are many inexpensive or free Wiki packages at our disposal and while they may not necessarily bend to meet our every requirement, with a little work can serve many of our needs.
(This article is written from a librarian’s perspective, but is generally applicable to anyone looking for practical ways of collaboratively managing documentation.)
