You should never suggest students or anybody else utilize anything but credible primary sources from a library. The internet and "Wikipedia" is hardly credible.

While I agree with Kimberly W. in spirit, I disagree in particular.
Obviously, everyone can agree that if you're doing research, you ought to get out and find things out for yourself. Primary sources are the most reliable.
That said, primary sources on FDR's presidency are quite rare. Most Americans who actually lived during those times are dead, and their records are decaying rapidly.
Thus we, as students of history, must piece together a picture of what we can with a combination of copies, secondary and tertiary sources, and opinion pieces, none of which are perfectly reliable.
Wikipedia and other websites may be unreliable as sources, but they are excellent places to start looking for sources, and as such, can form a surprisingly concrete foundation by which to begin answering any question.
