This community wiki is designed for collaboration and discussion among Open Library users.
Brewster has encouraged me to encourage the idea of creating a working community around OL -- folks who can participate in making changes and fostering sharing. That's all the guidance I have, so I'm assuming that we have to do the heavy lifting to make it happen. Can we work together on a proposal?
It was suggested that ideas be constructed and collected on this wiki, but that discussion is easier on the mailing lists.
There are three mailing lists:
ol-discuss for general questions and discussion; sign up to ol-discuss or read/search the archives
ol-tech for technical questions and discussion; sign up to ol-tech or read/search the archives
- ol-lib for discussions about "librarianship"; sign up to ol-lib (there are no archives for ol-lib)
List of current pages:
To create a new page:
1. type the address (e.g. http://openlibrary.org/community/important-topic) in your browser's address bar
2. see if the page exists (if it is not in the above list, it doesn't exist yet, but do so just to see what happens)
3. if it doesn't exist yet, append
?m=edit to the address (so that it becomes http://openlibrary.org/community/important-topic?m=edit) and go.
The new page will automatically appear in the above list when you save it.
