    Three weeks ago I took notes from a book in the library. In my notes I forgot to indicate if one of my notes was a quotation or a paraphrase of the source. When I wrote my paper last night, I accidentally included information that matched the source almost word for word, but I didn't place it in quotation marks. While I did not format the information correctly, this was a mistake, so it is not considered plagiarism.
