Wikipedia is not a scholarly or academic source but does contain some useful general information. If you are unsure about referring to Wikipedia, ask your instructor or visit the Learning Commons to learn more about using sources.
The special feature of a Wikipedia entry is that multiple authors can revise or expand an article at any time, so it is important to cite the archival date for the version you used. Select the "View history" tab and then the time and date of your version.
Format: Title of article. (archival date). In Wikipedia. URL
