Drakeapedia is a wiki page about Drake University, developed by Drake students for the Drake community. The page was created by the First Year Seminar Class in the Fall of 2010 and 2011. Their course, FYS022 - Drakepedia* - Building a Living Archive, was designed so the students would learn more about Drake history through the use of the library's special collections and resources, creating and using wiki technology and capturing history by conducting oral histories.
