Plagiarism is using someone else's work without giving that person due credit. This is one reason why a Works Cited page is so important at the end of a paper, and also why you should include in-text citations. These citations direct the readers of your paper to the sources so they can see where you got your ideas. Ideas from other sources should be credited, whether they are direct quotes or informal paraphrases of the ideas.
A good tool to use to create a Works Cited page is NoodleTools. For information on how to use it, view the NoodleTools LibGuide.
