    18. 18. Wikipedia Solution <ul><li>PC Pro (August 2007) cites the head of the European and American Collection at the British Library, Stephen Bury, as stating &quot;Wikipedia is potentially a good thing - it provides a speedier response to new events, and to new evidence on old items.&quot; The article concludes: &quot;For [Bury], the problem isn't so much the reliability of Wikipedia's content so much as the way in which it's used. &quot;It's already become the first port of call for the researcher&quot;, Bury says, before noting that this is &quot;not necessarily problematic except when they go no further.&quot; According to Bury, the trick to using Wikipedia is to understand that &quot;just because it's in an encyclopedia (free, web or printed) doesn't mean it's true. Ask for evidence .. and contribute.&quot;[21] </li></ul><ul><li>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reliability_of_Wikipedia </li></ul>06/10/09 Joan Vinall-Cox, Ph.D, www.jnthweb.ca
