Plagiarism is a form of cheating which may lower the grade you receive on your assignment. You must cite the source of any direct quotation and of any facts or ideas you obtained from another source. For more information about how to avoid plagiarism, please watch this brief video from Bainbridge College in YouTube: Plagiarism: How to Avoid It (www.youtube.com/watch?v=2q0NlWcTq1Y).
For tips on citation format, please see Diana Hacker's Humanities: Documenting Sources (bcs.bedfordstmartins.com/resdoc5e) or the MLA Formatting and Style Guide courtesy of the OWL: Purdue Online Writing Lab (owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/747/01).
Reference books are shelved by Library of Congress call number in the reference stacks located on the first floor of the Ruth Haas Library. They may not be checked out, but photocopiers are available for student use on the first and third floors.
