Want to collaborate with colleagues on campus or in Cleveland or Cairo? Are your students working on group projects? Want to serve on committees with fewer meetings? Technology can help manage the details of circulating documents and collaborative writing--among your students and with your colleagues. Some general principles include: sharing documents, commenting and discussing drafts, making sure everyone is looking at the right version of the document, and managing permissions. We will learn all these as they apply to the CITES Wiki in particular, and also discuss  a number of different technologies including Microsoft Word and other editors, Illinois Compass 2g, the Campus Wiki, and Box.net, Google Docs, and more.  

Developing better research skills is just a tweet away. Learn to find sources, manage information, and share your research with the world: Twitter @learnlibrary
