Copyright and Plagiarism: A Reading List

  • Debbie Mieszala’s Stop, thief! A plagiarism primer (NGS Magazine, April-June 2012) is a funny but very important look at the world of plagiarism.  If you are an NGS member, read it today!  If you   are not an NGS member, run, don’t walk to your closest genealogical library and read it carefully.  As Debbie points out “Keeping plagiarism out of our work is of utmost ethical importance.  Nobody wants to hear the words “Stop thief”‘ And certainly, nobody wants them to be true.”  The Further Study section at the end of the article offers links to many helpful articles and websites.
