Wikipedia

Is Wikipedia a Good Source?

The answer is "it depends". Some articles are better than others -- all are a work in progress. If you just need a quick idea of what something is about, Wikipedia can be a great source! Online, freely accessible resources such as Wikipedia contain entries written and edited by anyone - regardless of subject expertise. If you are doing research on a topic, you need to take the time to also find other sources, compare the information that's in there to Wikipedia, and do further reading.
