This week in class we looked in the encyclopedias for information. I was lucky enough to have my group choose to look up Yeti as our creature. Some things I found interesting about the encyclopedias were that none of them called the Yeti "Yeti". All three (Worldbook, Encyclopedia Britannica and Encyclopedia Americana) had Yetis listed under Abominable Snowman.
We also experimented with the validity for certain 'pedias' online. Both Monstropedia and Wikipedia appeared to have the same information with only slight variations. (A couple of rearranged words, and added sentences were thrown in.) All in all, finding valid information is proving to be difficult.
