Books About Plagiarism

Want to learn more about plagiarism and how to avoid it?  Try some of these books available at the Terteling Library.



According to The College of Idaho Student Handbook, "plagiarism is the presentation of someone else’s product, words, ideas, or data as one’s own work."  To prevent plagiarism, it is important to cite your sources! 

This guide is designed to provide resources for learning how to cite your sources in the three most common styles - MLA, APA, and Chicago/Turabian.  Please note that these are not the only formatting and citation styles available, and you should use the citation style instructed by your professor via the assignment, course syllabus, or verbal instructions.

Use the tabs above to navigate through each style.  The style pages each provide: a link to the current style manual in the C of I library catalog, links to helpful online resources, and basic examples for citing books, articles, and web pages.  For more information about specific style rules, or for instructions on how to cite information sources not covered in this guide, please refer to th

e style manuals, which are available at the C of I Reserves behind the circulation desk in the Terteling Library.

If you have questions or would like additional help, please do not hesitate to contact the library.

Citation Generators

These sites should be just one of many tools used for citing materials - they are not 100% error proof, and you should always double check the citations they produce. 

You, and you alone, are responsible for the accuracy of your citations.
