      BIBLIOGRAPHIES & CITATIONS

      When you use someone else's words, work, thoughts, and/or ideas, you need to give the person credit. It doesn't matter whether you quote the person word-for-word or put it in your own words (paraphrase), you need to acknowledge where the words, work, thought, or idea originated. Otherwise, you are passing it off as your own.

      Be responsible.

      Be honest.

      Show integrity.
