Review the scenario below and Test Your Knowledge.
Tommy Triton is almost done with his paper about the hardships of families during the Great Depression, but a picture on the cover sheet would add the final touch it needs. Tommy finds the perfect photograph on the Internet. He copies and pastes it into his document, but doesn't cite the image in his bibliography.
Has Tommy committed plagiarism? He sure has. Although it's easy to copy and paste images from the Internet, someone else has created the image and deserves the credit. Remember, all sources used for your research paper must be cited. In addition, check the style manual required for your class to correctly cite any type of media you use in your paper.
