What should I read? This is a question I often get from students and while I often recommend books, I also like to be able to tell students where to find this out on their own. Here are a couple of cool websites where you can find read-alikes, books that are similar to a book you loved. Click on the links below and check them out!
Plagiarism - What You Need to Know
Plagiarism is a serious issue since it's basically theft. You cannot "borrow" or steal people's ideas without giving proper credit. It does not matter if you accidentally plagiarize, or if you do it intentionally. If you don't give credit where credit is due, you have plagiarized. End of story. You MUST cite sources within the body of your paper AND in your Works Cited...even if you've paraphrased the original source.
