British need to credit Toledo’s role

As I read your Feb. 10 article “British press snubs Toledo in coverage of Manet exhibit; Local museum’s role in show goes unmentioned,” I couldn’t help but think about what I would do if a student of mine submitted a paper without crediting a source he or she used for research.

In my world as a teacher of eighth-grade English and literature at Rossford Junior High School, that’s called plagiarism.

The Toledo Museum of Art staff put much time and effort into co-curating a phenomenal international exhibit and deserves as much credit as London’s Royal Academy of Arts. The British news agencies should have taken their research lessons a lot more seriously, and given credit where credit is due.

Kudos to The Blade for mentioning London’s Royal Academy of Arts in articles on the exhibit when it was here.
