If you do not give proper credit to the sources of the ideas and quotations of others in your work, you are plagiarizing the information.

Choosing quality sources is an important part of research.  Use the handout and tutorial below to help you:

  • Select the best source/s for your information need and
  • Decide whether or not a source is reputable and provides accurate information that you can rely on for your project. 

Remember that your final product will only be as good as the sources you use.  Choose carefully!
