There are many potential uses of a Wiki within a community-based digital library. Users share individual ideas to build up community knowledge by efficient and effective collaborative authoring and communications that a Wiki provides. In our study, we investigated how the community knowledge is organized into a knowledge structure that users can access and modify efficiently. Since a Wiki provides users with freedom of editing any pages, a Wiki site increases and changes dynamically, We also developed a tool that helps users to navigate easily in the dynamically changing link structure. In our experiment, it is shown that the navigation tool fosters Wiki users to figure out the complex site structure more easily and thus to build up more well-structured community knowledge base. We also show that a Wiki with the navigation tool improves collaborative learning in a web-based e-learning environment.
