INFO LIT: Plagiarism

By the end of this instruction you should be able to understand what plagiarism is and when to cite your sources in order to avoid it.

Academic Integrity

The following is outlined in the NMH Student Handbook:

Acting with integrity is at the heart of the Northfield Mount Hermon mission statement and is a foundation for academic excellence. Students are expected to understand and act upon the academic integrity standards outlined in the Student Handbook. This requires honest representation of student work and understanding what constitutes academic fraud. 
Originality and proper source citation are two essential facets of academic integrity.

Originality 
Unless otherwise instructed by the teacher, all work submitted for academic credit must be original.

Source Citation
 Accurate and comprehensive acknowledgment of sources must be included in an assignment whenever such sources are used. For information about citing sources, ask the teacher, consult with a librarian, or connect with the NMH library. >
