  • Presenter: Bobby Hollandsworth / Business Librarian, Clemson University Libraries
  • Title: What You Need to Know about Plagiarism
  • Session Description: Come learn how to deter plagiarism through information, not threats.  This informative, interactive workshop will help you identify and avoid plagiarism. Topics include: defining plagiarism, paraphrasing, summarizing, direct quotations, citations, and where to find help.

“Giving students a tutorial on plagiarism is more effective in deterring the behavior than threatening students with detection and punishment. That’s according to the results of an experiment conducted by professors at the University of Michigan and Swarthmore College and published as a working paper by the National Bureau of Economic Research.”
