Bibliographies are most often associated with academic papers, but academic papers aren't the only medium where information is cited.

Animation showing how to share bibliographies
January's almost behind us, and we've just added another hot new feature to MyBib. Building a bibliography with a group can be tedious (not to mention lonely 😛). Group members are throwing sources and updates at you from every direction, and it falls on your shoulders to make sure they're all cited -- and correctly too. That's a pressure you could do without. We have the solution! We've added a way for your group members to securely access one of your bibliographies from their own computer or device so they can make changes without you.

Wikipedia has always had a reputation for being unreliable as a source because anyone can edit it, but it's actually more credible than you think. This is because every statement on Wikipedia has to be backed up with a source. Whether you are allowed to use Wikipedia in your paper is up to your teacher or tutor, but if you *are* allowed to use it then you need to cite it correctly. There are many different ways to cite a Wikipedia article, all depending on the citation style you need to format it in.
