On Wikipedia at University

"Well certainly when people copy and paste from Wikipedia that is a very stupid thing to do because your professors also read Wikipedia and they'll recognise it immediately. In term s of using Wikipedia as a source or not that's something I'm not too worried about. Certainly at the university level I think it would be silly to use Britannica as a source. Use it for background reading. Use it to get yourself oriented. Use it to point yourself in the right direction. But at the university level it's time to grow up and start to do some real research on your own."
