    I had a conversation with a student about Wikipedia the other day in class. He asserted the authority of the resource as evidence that it is appropriate for college level work.

    I am less worried about the rigor, and instead regard it as an encyclopedia, which is not nearly sophisticated enough for a college level student. Quality of information is, thus, not the only issue at hand, but also sophistication. I ask students when they learned how to use encyclopedias, which points to the elementary level of knowledge presented in such references.

    Thank you for a great topic that I am sure is of interest to many of our readers–at all levels.
