The professors that I've worked with the the Business School will not accept Wikipedia as evidence to support a case because the authority of the content can't be verified. My advice to you is that using Wikipedia is not worth the risk to your grade. Instead, I have two alternatives:
- Check the Wikipedia article for references that are more authoritative, and track down the references.
- Click the reply link in this email to send me the link to the Wikipedia article and let me know what part is useful. With that info, I can guide you to authoritative sources that will be more acceptable.
Thanks for aksing a librarian.
