Statement on Plagiarism – IC Libraries
Plagiarism is theft. When you use the ideas of another person without giving that person credit, you are guilty of plagiarism. If what you write in a school project does not come from your own head, or your own experimentation, or from common knowledge, you are probably plagiarizing. To avoid plagiarizing, always cite your source when you: quote someone directly, paraphrase someone, or summarize someone else’s ideas. Remember, just because you reword someone else’s ideas that does not make those ideas your own. To be on the safe side, always cite you sources, even if you seem to be overdoing it.
For guidelines on citing sources, see your school librarian about handouts covering the MLA and APA guides to bibliographies and in-text citations.
