Information items

  • We need better communication. Could the users (contributors, especially) get reports from discussion groups, project manager, product manager, etc. regularly (maybe one of the above each week) on items that affect the Wiki? Maybe a little pep talk from Diane once a month would be good? Jbparker 07:17, 27 January 2009 (UTC)

Discussion items

Forms from Research Guidance

Where best do we use these forms brought over from the old Research Guidance to the Wiki?  And how should we link to these, and citation best practices?

United States Census Forms

Also along the same lines, what can users do to help speed up the transfer of the remaining documents and forms to the wiki?  Fran is working on a page that lists the project and is the one that will know the most about it.
