    • Who is providing the information?
    • Where did the author find his/her facts, data, information?
    • What is the purpose of the site?
    • When was the site last updated?
    • What is the possible bias?


      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.
