Programme details:

Using the internet for research has many benefits but it can also encourage a ‘cut and paste’ culture.  As custodians of a vast pool of information resources and material, it is essential that school library staff have a good all-round knowledge of Copyright and Plagiarism legislation so that they are able to respond to questions raised and identify infringements if they occur.  This highly practical course will concentrate on understanding the importance of academic honesty, what constitutes plagiarism and cultural differences, spotting offences including the use of plagiarism checkers and teaching referencing styles.  It will cover activities such as photocopying and downloading images from the internet, licences and the penalties imposed on students if they are ‘caught out’ in public examinations.
