Using Wikipedia

WIKIPEDIA is a free Internet encyclopedia whose articles are written and edited collaboratively by volunteers.  It is a popular source for general information and background reading on unfamiliar topics.  Many of its articles provide references and links to external authoritative material that may be helpful for college-level research.
