The problem with Wikipedia is not that some items are full of lots of

you are not already expert in that field? I have looked at it a few
times but have never used it for information. I just don't trust it.
Nor should you trust it - or Britannica or any other encyclopedia. It is
a source of information and of links (references) to further
information, confirming or contradicting the content.
If you're wise, you do not trust record jackets, CD booklets or
compendia. You use them, one hopes wisely, but not as infallible
sources. For those, turn to the revealed word as your faith dictates.
