The Writing Center in the Learning Commons is happy to provide feedback to students who are working on papers and other projects. You can drop by the Center and schedule a time to meet with a peer tutor one-on-one. Appointments are strongly encouraged. You can schedule an appointment and view many of their resources online at their website (below).
Plagiarism has to do with taking credit (deliberately or accidentally) for someone else's work or information. To avoid committing plagiarism, it is important to attribute the source of your information.
Copyright infringement may be committed even if credit is given to the original creator. It pertains to unauthorized reproduction of someone else's intellectual property.
As students and educators, we do have some leeway in the reproduction of portions of copyrighted works for nonprofit educational use that fall under the fair use guidelines. In general, this means only a small portion of the work may be used and the reproduction must not adversely affect sales of the work.
