HLWIKI reaches 16 million views 

HLWIKI International, a wiki originally created to support LIBR 534: Health Information Sources and Services & LIBR 559M – Social Media for Information Professionals at UBC’s School of Library, Archival and Information Studies (SLAIS), has reached a new milestone: 16,000,000 million page views.

The wiki has become part of a larger strategy to track information practices in health librarianship especially fast-moving topics related to information technology. For eight years the wiki has been used as a digital space for teaching, information-sharing and collaborative writing. (The attached screenshot shows 16,000,000 views from all over the world, especially in developing countries where librarians need to access to current information in their field.)

I’d like to thank the librarians on our Advisory for their assistance in the project. From its start, the wiki was meant to build a health information and libraries tool with a global perspective but to emphasize issues affecting Canadian practitioners. If you look at the top 100 files of more than 1100 entries many are now essential sources of information (judging from their usage). Here’s to the next 16 million views. Dean Giustini, UBC
