LibWIS: Plagiarism - What Is It & How to Avoid (3:15-4:15pm)

Plagiarism: What Is It & How to Avoid It
3:15-4:15 pm, Ellis Library Room 4D11

Your class syllabus has a statement about “academic dishonesty” and “academic integrity.” What does this mean at MU? Plagiarism is an important—but sometimes confusing—issue for domestic and international students alike. Many people unknowingly commit plagiarism when writing their papers. Join us to learn how to identify and avoid plagiarism in your academic writing. We will look at common errors in citing resources, paraphrasing, and summarizing research as well as how to correct those errors and prevent plagiarism in your academic work.
