Wikipedia is the go-to information site for millions of people around the world. But should you use it for college-level research? Good question!
This session provides a way for your group to explore Wikipedia and learn more about how the articles are written. Then using the C.R.A.P. (currency, relevance, authority, and purpose) Test, you'll have a chance to evaluate and compare Wikipedia to more traditional scholarly sources by focusing in on various topics.
