Plagiarism & Academic Honesty:
The University of Mississippi's Information Literacy Committee has created a video and quiz on plagiarism and academic honesty. This project grew out of concerns about rising rates of academic dishonesty and students' lack of knowledge about plagiarism.
The Information Literacy Competency for Higher Education states: "The information literate student understands many of the economic, legal, and social issues surrounding the use of information and accesses and uses information ethically and legally."
- The video is 20 minutes long.
- You may watch the video as many times as needed to understand the concepts.
- The video is on the library website and as part of the plagiarism quiz.
