Wikipedia and Middlebury

Here's an interesting NY Times article about Middlebury College's history department banning the citation of Wikipedia in student papers. It's worth reading because it's fairly balanced in presenting the pros and cons of Wikipedia, and also in creative uses of it for the classroom.

I found this article quite interesting. The point that any encyclopedia was a less than impressive source at the college level is important to draw out.
