Understanding Plagiarism

The Eastern Michigan Library’s Understanding Plagiarism tutorial provides information about plagiarism through everyday examples and situations. The tutorial is divided into three sections: Toward an Understanding, which covers some common myths about plagiarism; Plagiarism in Context, which includes cases of plagiarism in popular culture; and Plagiarism in the Academy, which focuses on plagiarism as it may appear in classwork. The tutorial is easy to navigate, and each section includes assessment questions and opportunities for students to reflect on the concepts covered.
