Now that summer classes are over and there is another comps session coming up in a few months (yes, that's right, only 3 months and a week - roughly) I have decided to release the SLIS Comps Study Wiki which has been undergoing beta testing (sounds official, but not really).
Long story short, a joke about wikis at the last SLIS awards banquet turned into an experiment. Once I got thinking about the logistics involved with getting study groups together over the summer, I was convinced that a wiki might be the way to go.
I simply put together a front page with each additional page dedicated to each year's set of questions. The front page explains how to use the wiki. Since its creation, Jennifer Mattern and I have been dabbling with adding content specific to each question (only some of the more recent years have content). Yes, the questions from the 80s are there as well, and some questions may require duplicate information from another question, but instead of a subject type wiki, the actual questions are part of this so you can refer to specific points you need to focus on.
And so, as I head out of SLIS, I bestow this creation to LISSO, with the understanding that it belongs to the students and will evolve as they see fit. It is an open wiki, so as long as you make a pbwiki id for yourself, feel free to get going with additional content. (I'm sure Krista will post a link to the wiki on the LISSO Info Blog as well)

It will be interesting to see where this experiment leads :-)

What's more Kentuckian than horse racing? Join us for a day at the tracks! We'll meet up:
We'll start the day "seeing Blue"--listening to the UK Symphony in the walking ring (starting at 11:30). After that it's food, drink, and races for the rest of the afternoon.
Hope to see you there! :-)
That's all for now folks,
