Review of the Utilizing Process

Let's wrap up the process of utilizing:

Give credit to your sources
Lifting material directly from any source without giving credit to the original author or creator is dishonest and risky.

Use a recognized style guide
Consistency in citing sources is an expectation for academic work.

Respect the creative work of others
Copyright laws protect persons who create original works, as well as scholars wishing to analyze those works.
