Series: SLA Guidelines · Level: Secondary

Limited understanding of the issues concerned, too much reliance on the tried and tested "cut and paste", failure to cite sources, an increasing work load and tight deadlines can all lead students to fail to pay due regard to the pitfalls of plagiarism. This important guideline will take you through the issues, giving you confidence in recognising the problem and suggesting strategies for promoting academic honesty. It also contains information about cheat sites and essay banks and includes two excellent case studies by school library staff who are making a difference.
