Plagiarism & Citing Sources
Plagiarism [definition] is a violation of the Salem Honor Code. See:
"I. I will show respect for my classmates and faculty by maintaining honesty in my academic work and refraining from cheating." (p. 11, Salem College 2007-9 Academic Catalog)
Avoid committing plagiarism by properly citing every source you consulted to support the ideas presented in your research projects. Credit must be given when you quote, paraphrase, or otherwise appropriate another person's original ideas, theories, writings, or other works.
Use the library's "CITATION TOOLS" web page to find some terrific online resources that can help you with the citation process. For some common examples for your bibliographies, see: APA or MLA style. Quick reference guides are also available from the UW-Madison Writing Center Writer's Handbook or the "Cite Right" manual by Charles Lipscomb, CALL NUMBER Ref PN171 .F56 L55 2006.
