Wikipedia Officials’ Stand on Citing Wikipedia

Today, I posted two items about Wikipedia that might be of interest. Today must be wiki Friday ;)

First, a report from Inside Higher Ed, quotes Wikipedia officials’ reaction to policies by university professors that ban the citing of Wikipedia in student bibliographies. Note that neither policy mentioned was designed to stop students from using Wikipedia as a starting point for research, but rather to keep them from stopping there! Read more @ the library.

As an alternative to Wikipedia, watch for an upcoming new site called Citizendium. This is a new, grant-funded project that, unlike Wikipedia, will be edited by a panel of academics. Read the whole post.
