Abstract: Numerous studies have been conducted on Wikipedia. Lacking in the studies is how students perceive the use of Wikipedia in academic settings. This study is designed to investigate university student perspectives toward Wikipedia and its use as an information source in the academic learning environment. Participants are students from a large urban university in the United States.
