Purpose of Guide
The Plagiarism, Copyright, and Fair Use Guide was created to be a good starting point for information on academic integrity. This guide treats the topic of plagiarism pretty fully. It is recommended that you contact your professor first when you have any doubts or questions on whether or not something would be considered plagiarism. The librarian at the Reference Desk is also a good person to ask.
Any comments or suggestions aimed at making this guide more useful to students would be appreciated.
