The products of your own original work are your Intellectual Property. This includes writing, artwork, fiction, photographs, etc.
To demonstrate respect for others' intellectual property, you must give credit where it is due.
Respect the intellectual property of others - authors, artists, creators, producers - by paraphrasing and citing your sources.
While the librarians can help you find sources for your paper, visit the Writing Center (part of the Academic Support Center) for help with writing and organizing your paper. Call them at (914) 606-7853 to make an appointment.
