Wikipedia can be great reference resource to start learning about your topic.  It can help you with:

  • Developing some background knowledge about your topic, including an overview, definitions, and outline.
  • Discovering keywords, including related terms, sub-topics, and names of notable people, places, and events.
  • Finding links to other relevant resources.

It's generally true that Wikipedia should:

  • NOT be used as a main or only source of information for your project.
  • NOT be quoted/cited as a reference source in your final project.

REMEMBER: Always make sure to follow the requirements communicated by your teacher. The appropriateness of different information resources varies depending on the circumstances of specific assignments and topics.
