This paper will discuss the preservation challenges faced at the conclusion of a semester-long study to determine how effectively wikis can facilitate collaborative research in undergraduate learners. The study was conducted at the University of Central Florida in Dr. Katherine Giglio's fall 2007 Shakespeare course, which focused primarily on the social identities that pertain to Shakespeare's life, work and times. In small groups, students created wikis based on specific identities such as women, men, knights, fools, lovers and villains. Students collaboratively constructed wikis that would serve as research guides and would incorporate a wide range of primary and secondary source material. Once the project was complete, however, issues related to preservation and the intellectual property rights of our students were of primary concern. Our presentation will focus specifically on how current trends in Web 2.0 and open source publishing as vehicles for collaboration will impact projects such as ours with an eye toward intellectual property rights as well as methods of appraisal and preservation in this highly collaborative environment of ever-changing technologies.
