This website aims to teach students how to use sources effectively and responsibly. In these lessons, we do not focus on the punitive aspects of plagiarism. Instead, we want students to understand how to better articulate your ideas in relation to those of others. Avoiding obvious, intentional plagiarism is relatively straightforward; however, learning how to integrate sources responsibly, and without losing sight of your own voice is difficult for writers at all levels. Beyond Plagiarism seeks to help the user learn to negotiate this terrain with more confidence. Overall, as a research-based project, Beyond Plagiarism seeks to enhance information literacy and writing in regard to academic integrity and responsible engagement with research sources.
Funded in 2013 by a New Initiatives/New Infrastructures grant from Instructional Support Services within U-M’s College of Literature, Science, and the Arts, the resource is maintained by a team of instructors, librarians, and graduate students.
