Suggested Guidelines for Creating New Entries

In order to maintain consistency in entries across this Wiki, these simple guidelines are offered as a recommended format for new entries. First a few points:

Don't be afraid to leave some information blank. Wiki sites are "always under construction" and others can come along and add information when they have some to offer. If you are not sure about some information, include in the "notes" section, but leave unknown information blank in the main section. Other visitors who have accurate information may add it later If your browser does not correctly display the Asian language text for the page in question, do not try to edit the page as it may corrupt existing text (don't worry too much if this happens by mistake, later users can restore earlier versions and copy and paste your substantive changes to the earlier restored version if necessary) Try to keep things short in the Usage section, adding your personal experiences and comments in the notes section. As an indication of how up to date the information is, always include the last time you visited the library and confirmed the information or if you only got the information from a web page supply a date if you can find a "last updated" notation on their website. Two links that might also be of use:
