You can create a new wiki page using two methods.

First: Log in with your Middlebury username/password (upper right corner of LIS wiki)

Method #1:Use the Wiki URL

  • You can use the LIS wiki's base URL for creating a new page. The URL to an article of the LIS wiki is usually something like this:

http://mediawiki.middlebury.edu/wiki/LIS/Help:Contents

  • Type this same url into your browser's URL search box, but replace Help:Contents with the name of the page you wish to create (for example, /how_to_create_a_wiki')
  • You will be taken to a Search Results screen that says something like:  "There is no page titled [your title]. You can create this page."
