Reimagining the Knowledge Base: Using GitHub for Sharing and Collaboration

A session at LITA Forum

Friday 13th November, 2015

3:30pm to 4:15pm (CST)

Members of the North Carolina State University community are invited to produce content for high-definition video walls and other visualization spaces in the James B. Hunt Jr. Library. These spaces have varying specifications, requirements, and templates, developed by librarians across library departments. Ideally, this information would be hosted in a way that allows for increased collaboration, contributions from users, and provides the ability to choose an open source license. GitHub, a repository hosting service with version control, web-based graphical interface, and collaboration features, is not just for hosting code. This talk will describe the rationale behind the non-standard use of GitHub as a knowledge base.
