No. All text on Wikipedia, regardless of where it is added, is released under a free license. Including text from a copyrighted source anywhere on Wikipedia (except for short quotes or materials added to articles as fair use) is a copyright violation. You can add a summary or outline of the material or copy short quotes that you intend to use or reference later, but you should avoid anything beyond minimal copying of material from other sources into Wikipedia unless you are sure it is under a free license or in the public domain--this will not be true for almost all sources you find in the library or on the internet.
