Organising your information

Use the menu to use the guides about referencing, tips for referencing and plagiarism


Plagiarism is the act of taking another person’s work and passing it off as your own, which amounts to theft. This includes information from web pages, books, songs, television shows, interviews, articles, artworks or any other medium. Whenever you paraphrase, summarise, or take words, phrases, or sentences from another person’s work, it is necessary to indicate the source of the information within your work and in a bibliography at the end. This is called referencing

There is a video, created by Bainbridge College,  should help you to understand what plagiarism is and how to avoid it.
