Citation management tools
If you are working with a large number of citations, you may find it helpful to use an online citation management tool such as RefWorks, EndNote, or Mendeley.  There are numerous systems available, each with pros and cons.  The UVic Libraries' has created some guides and webpages to get you used to these systems and to compare. However, using a citation management tool is by no means a requirement, many researchers get by quite easily without them. 
 
 
Plagiarism
It is essential to give credit when you use other people's content in your academic work.  Your assignments and exams must be your own original work, not someone else's.
 
"The action or practice of taking someone else's work, idea, etc.,
and passing it off as one's own; literary theft.
(Oxford English Dictionary online, 2006)
