Using wiki technology in a credit library course, the authors created an online exhibit for students' research entitled the Digital Archive. The purpose of the Digital Archive is to showcase students' final projects from the course and to demonstrate research skills developed during the semester. It is an ongoing and evolving endeavor between students and instructors, and it will continue as a source of scholarly communication. The authors discuss the use of wiki technology, students' reactions, and lessons learned. Derived from student surveys, course evaluations, and instructor observations, the authors also present an assessment of the usefulness and effectiveness of using wiki technology to showcase coursework.
