Intellectual Honesty

  • TRIO Quest rewards students who create their own digital image(s). This may be their own original photograph(s), a scan of their own artwork, or a digital creation (i.e., graphics, etc.) – basically anything the student creates
  • Students must claim ownership of their original images by providing a Copyright Statement
  • If an image is not created by the student, it must be copyright free (i.e., comes from a non-copyright image resource, such as Creative Commons or a family album) AND the student must: 1) list the resource it came from, 2) cite the image in the correct format requested by the free use resource, AND 3) provide an active link to the free use image
  • If applicable, DigiText credits and citation are referenced within the DigiText content. Any outside source material used within the DigiText must be quoted or parenthetically cited on the page AND must be cited properly at the end of the writing (much like a research paper)
  • NOTE: Fair Use CANNOT be used for a DigiText entry
