Avoiding Plagiarism

T-P's Honor Code specifies that every student will do his own work :

"My efforts, preparations, and presentation are at all times honest."

Not following the code can bring serious consequences, not unlike those at colleges and universities.

Be sure to properly cite your sources, using Noodletools will help~

Here is a tutorial from the Paul Robeson Library at Rutgers University about plagiarism.
