Plagiarism - What You Need to Know

Plagiarism is a serious issue since it's basically theft. You cannot "borrow" or steal people's ideas without giving proper credit. It does not matter if you accidentally plagiarize, or if you do it intentionally. If you don't give credit where credit is due, you have plagiarized. End of story. You MUST cite sources within the body of your paper AND in your Works Cited...even if you've paraphrased the original source.

This link will take you to a quick video tutorial about the different types of plagiarism: http://www.plagiarism.org/resources/webcasts
