Reliable Sources ~ Citations ~ Plagiarism

Giving Credit Where Credit Is Due is what we need to do when creating information for projects at ACGC.  You will always need to cite information that is not yours.

Wikimedia Commons ~ Citation Needed

Your ACGC teachers will help you with the topics of Reliable Sources, Citations and Plagiarism.  Plus you are always welcome to stop in at the Media Center and ask Mrs. Tagtow and Mrs. Knisley for help.

Plagiarism:  It is against the law to copy other people’s work without using citations.  How Can I Use My Sources Without Plagiarizing?

Citations:  When your teacher asks you to use a formal citation, a great site to use is EasyBib.  You can find the EasyBib link also at our ACGC Destiny Home Page.  (ACGC uses MLA Citation Style)

Reliable Sources:  Here at ACGC, we are fortunate to be able to access: ELM:  Electronic Libraries of Minnesota.  You can find the ELM link also on our ACGC Destiny Home Page.
