The Little Book of Plagiarism

Written by a judge, this simply and elegantly written book makes plagiarism easy to understand. It should be required reading for faculty and students everywhere. Author Richard A. Posner uses examples and situations from real life to illustrate the trouble we can get into as students and professionals when we plagiarize on purposely or accidentally. Find it on the Learning Commons level (second floor) of the library at 346.048 P966 L881 2007.

Information Literacy Information for Faculty

Welcome! It is our hope that this LibGuide will help you provide an enriching Information Literacy experience for your students. The librarians at all three campuses strive to collaborate with you to make each session, Embedded Ebrarian presence or assignment relevant to what students are learning in the courses you teach. We keep up with the latest technologies used to teach Information Literacy as well as the latest enhancements to our long list of databases. We are happy to meet with you individually to work out a strategy for your courses which may or may not include a library visit. Here's a sample of what we can provide:

  • Face-to-face Information Literacy sessions in the library or in your own computer lab. We will work with you to make this experience relevant for your students and whatever project they are working on. (This does not have to be a traditional term paper!) Request a session (for any campus) here: http://www.bucks.edu/library/forms/ilform.php
  • Embedded Ebrarians for online courses. We can contribute to discussions, answer IL-related questions, and suggest sources for research relevant to your course. We've used http://www.delicious.com, online (Captivate) tutorials, LibGuides, custom-made video and other tools for online courses. Check out our list of tutorials at http://www.bucks.edu/library/infolit/tutorials.php. Request an Embedded Ebrarian at http://www.bucks.edu/library/infolit/session-request/
  • Professional Development so that you can provide your own IL instruction with appropriate resources for your discipline and without a formal library session.
  • Librarians are happy to meet with you to discuss the possibilities. Contact your department's library liaison (http://www.bucks.edu/library/services/serv_fac.php) or Bill Hemmig--especially for Embedded Ebrarians-- (x8619, hemmigw@bucks.edu), for more information.
