Academic Honesty / Plagiarism

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

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.

Our librarians and other university faculty have created a website on Academic Honesty that addresses this sometimes complex topic, with some interesting examples of case studies. You be the judge!
