Plagiarize if you dare!

This has been a rather hot story the past day or two, so you may be familiar with it already. A producer for CBS was fired for plagiarism, using material from a Wall Street Journal article verbatim.

I bring this story to your attention to emphasize the need to cite your sources! If you ever have doubts as to whether or not to make reference to a source, always err on the side of caution and cite the source. The Regis Libraries have created several handouts covering different citation styles. The Regis University Writing Center can also assist you with any style or formatting questions you may have.

P.B.
