Students who want to know more about how to avoid plagiarism should visit plagiarism.org, an excellent site with lots of information on what is and isn't considered plagiarism and how to avoid the pitfalls. You can see the College policy on plagiarism here.
For staff of St. Patrick's College we provide Turnitin, a web-based program allowing you or your students to submit a document and obtain an 'originality report'. It gives feedback on referenced sources and details as to where further referencing is required.
If you'd like to know more about turnitin and how you can start using it, please contact Liam O'Dwyer in the Library @ 8842175.
