What this is

How to use this resource
From Wikipedia: A wiki (IPA: [ˈwɪ.kiː] <WICK-ee> or [ˈwiː.kiː] <WEE-kee>) is a website that allows the visitors themselves to easily add, remove, and otherwise edit and change available content. This ease of interaction and operation makes a wiki an effective tool for mass collaborative authoring.
Members who are registered on the wiki (which is in addition to being registered on the main website) can edit pages here. You do have to log in to the wiki in order to make additions or changes.
If you have a book or article to add, you can:
If you have comments about a book or article, you could create a page for that book or article and make your comments there. Similarly, if you're the author of a book or article and have something you would like to add here, you could create a page for that book or article and make your comments there.
To register so you can edit the wiki, send an email message requesting that access to the AWCA webmaster. A little help to get you started with editing a wiki:
