NCAR 100 Freshman Seminar Library Resources: Plagiarism Information

This guide gives an overview to library resources

Avoiding Plagiarism and Resources

It is important as a college student to understand what plagiarism is and avoid it. When you quote, paraphrase (use your own words), or summarize information and ideas written by another person, you must give that author credit.

We give credit to the author by using in-text citations in the body of the paper and creating a References or Works Cited page (last page). You must have both the in-text citation and the complete citation on the References or Works Cited page. View the APA  or the MLA sample paper. Some professors may ask you to submit your papers to TurnItin, a plagiarism checking database.
The most popular styles for citing your work is APA or MLA. Always check your assignment to see what the professor requests for your paper. There is an online citation builder, NoodleTools, which you can use to create citations. You must log on through the library website in order to get free access.
