YES! Do it! And any other links as well. As for format, how about:
   [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interlibrary_loan Wikipedia]


   [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interlibrary_loan Wikipedia Interlibrary loan]

and for another site, for example:

   [http:... LC Standard]

Anyway, it's a wiki, just do it, and we can always clean things up  
later when we have more examples.

Diane H and I have long been "threatening" to create a site of  
"Library data for non-librarians", and this could become the seed of  
that. Our idea (if I can speak for her as well) is to make library  
data more usable by others by explaining some of the things that  
aren't immediately obvious.
