Library Research Skills: Avoiding Plagiarism: Home

This guide offers an overview of the content for the Avoiding Plagiarism library workshop.



If your professor is requiring you to take Library Research Skills Workshops, or giving extra credit, this LibGuide does not replace a Library Skills Research Workshop, and your professor will not be notified.  You must attend an actual workshop to meet your professor's expectations.

If your professor has included a module in your Canvas classroom on this topic, this LibGuide does not replace that module. You will need to complete the module in Canvas, as it has a quiz at the end, which this LibGuide does not. 

This guide will help you understand:

  • What is plagiarism?
  • How can you use borrowed material?
  • What is copyright and fair use?
  • Tips for avoiding plagiarism

Each tab in this guide corresponds to one of the bullet points above.
