Academic Dishonesty Policy

It is the obligation of a student to be thoroughly familiar with proper citation of sources and to consult with his/her instructor and refer to authoritative style guides for research papers. Ignorance or carelessness is not a valid excuse for plagiarism. The Bowdoin College Library Web site provides links to style guides at: http://library.bowdoin.edu/1st/sources.shtml.
