While we all acknowledge that Wikipedia is not primary literature and should not be cited as a resource in most academically oriented works, we also are cognizant that Wikipedia is the first stop for many of our students on the way to more in depth research.
Not today! Today Wikipedia’s English language site is in blackout mode!
Why you might ask? It political so I wont go into that here, but if you want to know more: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:SOPA_initiative/Learn_more.
What does this mean for us? For this one day only we are Wikipedia free. What will you do without the worlds largest encyclopedia?
