  4. Use sources provided by the university library, your local library, peer- reviewed articles, and sites ending with gov and/or org. Wikipedia is useful but the information needs to be double- checked and researched. Some instructors will not all information from wikipedia because some find the information unreliable since anyone can add information to the site. Be sure to ask the instructor before using sources from this site.If you are not certain on what is or is not useable ask the instructor or fellow classmates.
