Wikipedia, the free online encyclopedia, has come a long way since its 2001 launch. As source evaluation experts, librarians have long been suspicious of Wikipedia's credibility. It's time to take another look at Wikipedia and consider how it can be used in our day-to-day reference interactions as well as in information literacy instruction. Please join Bryant University's Allison Papini as she shares her experiences attending and organizing Wikipedia meetups as well as the successes and opportunities she has encountered trying to encourage increased use of Wikipedia at Bryant University.
