Thanks to a post by Librarian in Black, I have come across a project at the Boatwright Memorial Library at the University of Richmond. They have set up a wiki for Library FAQs. It includes sections on Getting oriented, starting your research and finding sources, choosing and using resources, accessing from off-campus and general questions. Therefore it is another way of helping students find what they need, and in the process help them to become more information literate. Main advantage from librarian point of view likely to be ease of editing and updates, with ability to involve a raft of staff, and students. Uses MediaWiki.
