Plagiarism Workshops

The library is offering 3 Plagiarism workshops for students in October (additional sessions will be offered in November):

Thurs. Oct. 13 @ 12:30 – 1:30
Weds. Oct. 26 @ 1 – 2 pm
Fri. Oct. 28 @ 1 – 2 pm

The workshop will cover topics such as summarizing, paraphrasing, common knowledge, time management, in-text citations, and signal phrases.  Two hands-on activities will help participants practice these skills. The workshop will generally cover MLA citation style, but students are free to ask have questions about APA or Chicago style.

All workshops cover the same material, so students should attend the workshop that’s most convenient for their schedule.

Tues. Oct. 11 @ 12:30 – 1:30
Mon. Oct. 24 @ 1 – 2 pm
