At the Canadian Light Source (CLS), the Accelerator Operations and Development (AOD) department makes extensive use of a wiki as a form of documentation for crossover, work instructions, and other resources. AOD began using a wiki in 2015 and over time it has become an integral part of everyday operations. I will provide an overview of how AOD has implemented the wiki, including what kinds of information are stored there and what administrative practices are applied in maintaining it. Additionally, I will comment regarding the impact of the wiki on operations from the perspective of an Operator using the wiki on a day-to-day basis.
