    I think wikis, more so than blogs, allow people to expand upon topics more. The language of blogs is more to catch people's attention with short blurbs and links. The wiki allows you to present information more like a scholarly paper, with a reference list and everything.

    I like this page because it gives short overviews of Library Leaders without sacrificing scholarship.

    I like to format of your Wiki and the organization of it. Particular topics are easy to find. Since your wiki deals with a specific topic, you're able to pull out the most frequently discussed issues within that topic and expand upon them. I do like how Wikis are able to be better organized than blogs in that way.

    I also like your color scheme, its easy to read and its not too busy. Sometimes, many people who design websites or wikis will try and throw as much information on the front page as possible. This makes it hard to navigate throughout the site. I feel like your site is easy to navigate, particularly the side bar with particular topics on it.

    Good job all!

    Unglamorous aspects of intellectual freedom:
    A brief defense of the boring and everyday
    When we think of promoting intellectual freedom we usually think of fighting against book banning and censorship, but there are some more everyday approaches to intellectual freedom in the library. If the keys to intellectual freedom are access and privacy, then the day-to-day circulation, and reference transactions are the areas can do the most foster freedom of the mind. Simple things the library does maintain privacy so that patrons feel free to read whatever they choose. For example, libraries delete records of what they have checked out. Libraries make sure no one browses the holds-shelf to see who has what on hold. Libraries do not allow friends and family members to ask what is on another persons account. The library promotes access to materials through clear organization, and customer service. For instance, providing information at the reference desk without judgment, keeping the stacks neat, and making the library environment safe and inviting all promote intellectual freedom. None of these ideas are surprising or original, in fact they are all standard practice in libraries. I think it is important that we recognize the serious issues like Intellectual Freedom behind our basic, even boring, everyday functions as librarians.
