Use the APA CITATION STYLE (6th ed) to avoid PLAGIARISM by giving PROPER CREDIT to those people whose ideas you use in your projects & assignments.
Proper credit = IN TEXT CITATIONS + REFERENCE LIST
plagiarism = the act of taking and using the whole or any part of another person’s work and presenting it as your own work without proper acknowledgement
in text citations = citing your source in the middle of your text when quoting or paraphrasing
reference list = alphabetical list of all the books, images, web pages, newspaper, and journal or magazine articles used in your assignment

NOTE: DO NOT use IE8 – this very old version of IE makes the pages look horrible!
