Make a Good Faith Effort

One way to use information ethically is to cite your sources and not plagiarize. By citing your sources and avoiding plagiarizing other people's work, you give people credit where credit is due.

Not only is citing sources important in order to give credit, but it also helps you share work with other people. Someone can you look at your citations to see if they would like to look at those resources as well.

We are not going to lie--citing sources can be tedious! Just remember to make a good faith effort and keep in mind that everyone makes mistakes from time to time. Check out the other tabs in this module to learn more about citing sources as well as help in creating them.
