A NOTE ON WIKIPEDIA
When you don't know much about a topic, Wikipedia is a great place to start for a couple of reasons:
1. You can read an overview of the topic to learn more and even narrow down a few keywords.
2. You can follow the references at the bottom of the page to find useable resources.
Wikipedia is not a valid source for research. You should never have it in your bibliography.
Please reference the images below for a quick recap on Primary & Secondary Sources.
