OWL PURDUE WRITING LAB
OWL Purdue Writing Lab
When you use the words or original ideas of another person in your writing, you need to document, or give credit to, the sources of those words or ideas. If exact words from the original are used, quotation marks are necessary. If you paraphrase, or restate the idea in your own words, quotation marks are not required, but documentation of the source is still required.
Copying someone else's work or ideas and misrepresenting them as your own is called plagiarism. Committing plagiarism, whether intentionally or unintentionally, is a violation of academic integrity and can result in suspension from school. The best way to avoid plagiarism is to:
•Take good notes and record important citation information (author, titles, dates, pages, etc.)
•Avoid copying and pasting from the Web and other electronic resources
•Use your own ideas and words
•Give credit for copied, adapted, or paraphrased material using a proper citation style

The Mission of Our Library
To empower students and faculty to be critical thinkers, enthusiastic readers, skillful researchers and ethical users of ideas and information.
During the summer of 2019, our Library was gifted a generous donation to provide a much needed facelift. This design included student friendly bookshelves, new carpet and paint, a MakerSpace and a learning space with whiteboard, interactive projector and audio system.
