Many students use Wikipedia as a source of information multiple times a week, if not every day. But what happens when that information lacks accuracy and proper citations?
It’s a problem the Wikipedia Collaboration of Dental Schools (WCODS) aims to address in the dentistry field.
Linnaea Halpert, a University of Toronto student who is graduating in June with her doctor of dental surgery degree, is the president of the Faculty of Dentistry’s WCODS club. The club was started three years ago with the assistance of Associate Professor Hashim Nainar and Helen He, the head of the Faculty of Dentistry’s library.
