Correct Use of Borrowed Information

In many of the assignments you will write in your Winthrop career, and in much of the writing you will do beyond Winthrop, you will need to incorporate the ideas, images, and words of other people. Knowing how to document that borrowed information correctly and effectively not only strengthens your performance as a writer, but demonstrates your commitment to ethical behavior and responsible use of intellectual property. Winthrop has created a document called "The Correct Use of Borrowed Information" that highlights how you should doucment and acknowledge source use in your academic writing. Your instructor may require you to print out this document and sign the pledge at the end of it; you will also find it bound in the Winthrop custom editions of the Prentice Hall Reference Guide that are required for the core courses in the Touchstone program.
