And some pages about wikis:

Victoria

Public Records Office Victoria

PROVWiki is a pilot initiative of Public Record Office Victoria (PROV). Its primary aim is to offer you the opportunity to contribute your knowledge of, and research into, the collections held by PROV in order to enrich the information we can make available to the community. You can either add to existing information on this site about a particular subject or you can create your own subject stream.

Eastern Regional Libraries

What is Web Links Wiki?

  • authoritative links on popular subjects
  • a website you can edit
  • tutorials to assist in using library resources

Central Highlands Regional Library Corporation

Moreland City Council

WikiNorthia is a website project that encourages people across five local councils to share stories about life in the north of Melbourne – past and present. The project is the first of its type in Victoria and in fact Australia.

Queensland

Queensland Public Libraries

This wiki is for use by public librarians and library staff in Queensland. Use this wiki as a place to advertise your library events and training, store minutes from meetings, discuss best practice protocols or the latest 2.0 innovation, or even post that funny library youtube video you've seen. This is YOUR wiki. YOU need to update it, add to it, edit it and refer to it so it can grow and become a fun and useful tool.

NSW

State Library of NSW

This wiki is being provided by the State Library of New South Wales for a collaborative project with the New South Wales public libraries. The first of these is the NSW ref-ex project. [...] NSW ref-ex is based on the Ohio Reference Excellence (ORE) program of training.

This collaboration between New South Wales public libraries and the State Library of New South Wales aims to improve reference and information services training in New South Wales public libraries.
