While looking at history entries on Wikipedia I noticed a few things. The first is that there are citations in the text that link you to sources for the material given. This is helpful for research purposes. I also noticed that links are made in the material to other Wikipedia pages that detail the people and events relevant to the topic at hand but not fully discussed. I also explored some of the pictures found on the pages which seem to all be located on Wikimedia commons, one of the cites we discussed with Gene that can be used to find images in the public domain. Overall, I think the Wikipedia pages are useful; however the ability for anyone to edit the pages creates a problem in finding reliable information.
