FamilySearch Wiki:Wiki Support/Reading List
Wiki Support > Reading List
Administrators and support volunteers are expected to have an intimate understanding of the FamilySearch Research Wiki policies and guidelines. With that understanding is a requirement to consistently demonstrate this comprehension. This is especially paramount regarding the use of abilities entrusted to administrators and several roles related to administration which are unavailable to regular users and editors of the FamilySearch Research Wiki.
There are numerous pages in the wiki that describe usage, editing, maintenance, and governance aspects of the wiki. Out of all the documentation available to administration and support, the following items are considered highly recommended reading material. These pages detail prerequisite knowledge required by those who serve in administrative and support roles.
