In writing papers, you must give credit whenever you use materials (words, phrases, ideas, arguments, or conclusions) that you have borrowed from someone else’s work.  Failure to give credit by properly putting borrowed ideas in quotations marks and/or by footnoting is PLAGIARISM and is unacceptable. The University’s honesty policy is set forth here: UF’s Student Guide to Academic Honesty.  See also the American Historical Association site



Students requesting accommodation for disabilities must first register with the Dean of Student’s Office. For information about the University’s disability accommodation process, please review UF’s Guide to Disability Accommodations and Services.
