What Is Plagiarism?

Plagiarism is using someone else's words or ideas without giving credit to the source. Many students plagiarize unintentionally, but whether you mean to do it or not, it is still bad practice, and if you are caught the consequences are likely to be severe. 

Pace Library has created an online, interactive exercise to teach students about plagiarism and how to avoid it. To learn more or to have this interactive module added to a Blackboard course shell, please contact Phil Poggiali at ppoggiali@pace.edu

For additional online resources, see “Using Research"  from the Purdue OWL, especially the sections titled Quoting, Paraphrasing, and Summarizingand ."Is it Plagiarism?"
