College Librarians Warm up to Wikipedia

From Inside Higher Ed:  In recent weeks I have been asked by several people about the validity of using Wikipedia links for research, both inside a company and for an academic paper.  I pointed out that there is still considerable animosity towards the WP from academia.  So I cautioned that you should check with the specific professor before citing the WP.   Inside the enterprise there is less animosity, but still quite a bit of caution at play.  In either case it is good to be cautious.  This article shows that there is perhaps some weakening in the negative views.
