Wikipedia Passes the Test (Sort of)

From Library Stuff

Steven Cohen has a link to an article in the Denver Post called, “Grading Wikipedia”

The Post’s Michael Booth says he has always found Wikipedia to be ” a tremendous resource, whether I need a quick primer on the history of the Caliphate, or the name of that dog that used to star in “Frasier.”  He decided to enlist the help of 5 scholars to evaluate entries in their given field.  The results: 4 out 5 Scholars found their entries “accurate, informative, comprehensive and a great resource for students or the merely curious.”
