Begin Your Search
Call up the Wikipedia main page (see the Resources section below).
Enter the subject in the 'Search' box. Pay close attention to the spelling and avoid articles (i.e., 'a' and 'the').
Click on the 'Go' button (or hit the Enter key on the keyboard) to see the closest related articles. For a wider range of information and article choices, click on the 'Search' button.
Refine your search using the brief descriptions returned in the search results if multiple topics appear. Wikipedia lists the most likely choices when a search term is not precise or has multiple meanings.
Print a Wikipedia Article
