Handout: Introduction to Wikipedia

London-based medical librarian Reinhard Wentz (previously mentioned here) and medical student Vipul Sharma have produced a a great handout to help introduce users to Wikipedia as a potential resource. The handout includes links for additional readings on background and issues such as bias, currency, reliability, and plagiarism.

I thought it was excellent and was very pleased when Reinhard agreed to have it posted here. I like that it succinctly covers all the most important points and issues in only two digestible pages.

Got feedback? Leave it here and we’ll make sure Reinhard and Vipul see it.
