Plagiarism, put simply, is taking credit for work that isn't your own. This ranges from repeating information you read without properly citing the source, to purposefully copying someone else's work and submitting it as your own. The library has a set of resources to help you avoid plagiarizing, including videos on how to properly quote and paraphrase information, and a checklist to make sure you haven't inadvertently plagiarized through incorrect citation practice. The complete plagiarism help guide can be found here.
