Library Workshops & Avoiding Plagiarism


The STH Library hosts a weekly workshop series Wednesdays at 1pm in the Library Instruction Room (209). These workshops are designed to assist our users with locating and accessing resources for their research, beginning use of software like Bibleworks, and properly citing sources and avoiding instances of plagiarism. Check out our Spring 2019 Library Workshop Calendar!

Plagiarism Workshops

Plagiarism is a serious concern and one that the university takes very seriously. Plagiarism involves using the work of someone else and failing to give proper credit or acknowledgment, thereby claiming the information as your own. While professors will expect you to use outside sources when doing your research, they will also expect you to acknowledge the work of those authors you have chosen to use in your paper. At BU, all students are expected to have read or be familiar with the university policy on plagiarism. Check out our following resources below and our slideshow here.
