The Library & Your ANTR 7 Assignment

Information in Wikipedia articles should be based on reliable, published sources. If no reliable published sources can be found on a topic, Wikipedia should not have an article on it.  Unfortunately, reliable published sources are often behind a paywall and cost money (think of shows you watch or your textbooks). This is where the library comes in!

Unlike Google or other free search engines, the library provides access to costly published materials, like books and articles. While there are many types of unpublished sources that are useful and credible, Wikipedia seeks published materials that are secondary sources.  These types of sources have gone through the expense and editing of the publishing process, which makes them very helpful for the very neutral writing done in Wikipedia. The college library specializes in providing you with free & efficient access to the expensive scholarly information that you need to use for your course assignments. The library also helps you to use this information ethically, by providing research and citation help.
