Workgroups are no longer used for group communications, but they still are used to group articles into fields of interest. Each article is assigned to 1 to 3 Workgroups via its Metadata page. Communications formerly occuring in a Workgroup should now take place in the Forum or in individual article Talk pages.

As one of the two initial editors for this workgroup, I have started this page, and welcome other editors, prospective editors, and prospective writers. Please join in the discussion on our forum listed above.

Library and Information Science workgroup tasks (based on recommendations by Larry Sanger)

  • a welcome message aimed at new editors in your area
  • Launch list of top articles Right now, there is a partial list of high priority articles (see below). We need to transfer that into a different form, i.e., by placing "Category:Library and Information Science Workgroup (Top)" at the bottom of articles that are regarded as "high priority" for an area. Note, don't also mark an article you're tagging as "live" unless you've actually worked on it!
  • Launch workgroup tagging of articles In addition to tagging top articles, whether live or not, we also need to tag live articles according to their likely managing workgroup. So, for instance, one might go to "Category:CZ_Live" and at the bottom of the "xyz" article put "[[Category:Library and Information Science Workgroup]]". This means that we think the Library *and Information Science workgroup will be the main group to manage this article. Note, the tag is *not* "[[Category:Library and Information Science]]"; that's because we're attaching the article to its *management*.
  • Launch area management and proposed subgroups: deferred We should probably defer selection of discipline workgroup management until after more people have arrived. There may be so few of us that little formal organization is needed.
    • The organisation we inherited from the Wikipedia portal is subdivided into List of Library and Information Science topics, however, we do not have to follow such a format. We can move forward with subgroups that seem more natural,if we decide we need subgroups at all. We can discuss this in the Library and Information Science forum, as we reach a critical mass of editors and authors.
  • Relevant lists and headers from Wikipedia are shown at the bottom of this page.

Core articles

Core articles are those that are as-yet unwritten and so should be prioritised. Please start articles on the topics below. Click here to edit this transcluded list.

High priority articles

This list of articles was extracted from the (now deprecated) CZ:High priority articles for pilot page. It can be used as a starting point for placing "[[Category:Library and Information Science Workgroup (Top)]]" tags. We need to decide which of the articles below should be classified as "Top" (possibly all of those listed?) and the remainder should be tagged with "[[Category:Library and Information Science Workgroup]]" tags. Tentative suggestion for "top" have been made below, by using bold. DavidGoodman 23:40, 30 November 2006 (CST)
