WikiLit: About Wikipedia

Loyal Reader, it's the beginning of another week and time for a new Featured Online Resource is WikiLit, a wiki style bibliography of scholarly work on the ever-contentious web site Wikipedia. This great site sprang up not a moment too soon.  A couple of years ago, I posted my own bibliography and was going to update it. But why should I do the work of a whole team?
WikiLit gives citations and abstracts for more than 300 peer-reviewed articles and about 30 dissertations. They have given just abstracts for 1,500 dissertations. Nicely organized, the wiki breaks articles, in Wikimedia fashion, into categories, listing the number of entries for each.
