Definition: To steal and pass off (the ideas or words of another) as one's own : use (another's production) without crediting the source. --Merriam-Webster's Online Dictionary

1. Quoting another person’s actual words
2. Using another person’s ideas, opinion, or theory
3. Using another person's creations like art work, images, illustrations, etc.
4. Borrowing facts, statistics, or other illustrative material, unless the information is common knowledge
Although the library is closed over the winter break, library services remain available. Librarians are available by text, phone, and Zoom. Many of the library's resources are available electronically. If you have any questions, please call The Desk at 508-565-1313. Safety measures have also called for some additional changes in library operations. You can learn more about them on the FAQ page of the library website.
