The Code of Academic Integrity defines Cornell University's official guidelines concerning honesty in academic pursuits. One example of violating this code is stated as "knowingly representing the work of others as one's own." It is important to cite the work of others if you use or refer to it in your work. See MLA and APA citation styles at Purdue OWL.
For more complete information, or if you have any questions on citing the work of others, please Ask a Librarian.
