Orientations iconWikipedia and Academic Research: Thursday, July 5, 12-1 pm MT

Many students turn to Wikipedia, the collaborative online encyclopedia, when carrying out research for assignments and papers. Wikipedia is not an appropriate resource to rely upon when carrying out university course work, but it can be a launching-pad to quality scholarly research. This webinar will show you how to use Wikipedia as a basic guide to finding scholarly resources, and how to critically evaluate Wikipedia articles.
