First Steps

Evaluating Sources

Is this a popular or scholarly source of information? 

Is the source credible, current, etc.? Read about Evaluating Sources.

Scanning in the Library

Scanners are available on the first and second floors.  Remember to bring a USB / memory drive to download your scanned pages.  Use the phone in the copy room if you need help.

Plagiarism / Academic Honesty

Academic honesty is a cornerstone of university learning.  You may have heard the term plagiarim before. What is plagarism?

According to Merriam Webster’s Online Dictionary, to “plagiarize” means:

  • To steal and pass off (the ideas or words of another) as one’s own;
  • To use (another’s production) without crediting the source;
  • To commit literary theft;
  • To present as new and original an idea or product derived from an existing source.

Examples of plagarism.

Our librarians and other university faculty have created a website that addresses this sometimes complex topic. 

You might find these case studies interesting.
