Should students use Wikipedia? « Eric Jennings

Wikipedia is one of my favorite websites.  Of course it should not be used as a sole source of information; use it as one source of many, or as starting point for further research. This caveat applies to the web in general; there are goldmines of good information out there and there are also all sorts of bogus or trashy sites. Always use multiple sources for information and when making an important decision: consult with other people directly by talking to them and asking questions !
