LibWIS Week: Plagiarism (3:15-4:15pm)
Plagiarism: What is it & How to Avoid It
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.
What is LibWIS?
LibWIS are research sessions open to any student, but international students are particularly encouraged to attend. These hour-long, no-registration workshops taught by library staff are in Ellis Library, Room 4D11 . LibWIS WEEK is Jan 29—Feb 2. Every day that week at 3:15pm, a new topic will be explained. (See below.) LibWIS Wednesdays & Open Labs occur every Wednesday afternoon from Feb 7 – April 25. The sessions from LibWIS Week will be repeated on alternating Wednesdays with Open Labs in-between for students to walk in with any library/research question. All sessions will be in Ellis Library, Room 4D11, 3:15-4:15pm.
