About Wikipedia: Welcome

Wikipedia - a great place to start your research, a lousy place to end..

Welcome to Our Guide to Wikipedia

Welcome to The Hub's Guide to Wikipedia.  Wikipedia is often a student's first stop when a research project is assigned.   While it's a great place to begin your research, it's a lousy place to stop! 

This guide is designed to help you evaluate information in Wikipedia in a smart and thoughtful way.  We hope that the tips, videos, and checklists will help you assess the information in Wikipedia and encourage you to consider it as a starting, not ending point, in your research!
