Singapore: Librarians and Wikipedia

Rambling Librarian in Singapore discusses the use of Wikipedia as a resource by librarians. “Some librarians feel that a resource like Wikipedia should not be cited as part of an answer to a customer (in response to their information enquiry). I'm not saying their concerns have no basis. I'm just saying that to discount a wiki entirely without first accessing the value of its content would be foolish. Unprofessional, even.”
