"Plagiarism is the representation of the ideas of others as one's own. Unfortunately, plagiarism can be unintentional, as well as intentional (look at what happened to George Harrison via The Copyright Website).
Like most colleges and universities, Rider takes a strong stand against plagiarism. Policies and handbooks are posted on Rider's website: https://www.rider.edu/offices-services/handbooks-policies. Links to policies regarding copyright law are found on this page, including the Student Code of Social Conduct.
The Libraries' website provides excerpts of style guides to assist you in using correct citations to give attributions.
