Deficient Developing Accomplished Exemplary
The School works to ensure that faculty members use course materials in a legal and ethical manner. The iSchool encourages faculty to use the library’s resources and online course reserves for readings. The library handles copyright and accessibility issues and students can be provided with easy online access to the materials.
The iSchool Faculty Handbook section on Course Reserves includes information about copyright and Fair Use.
Students and faculty members receive information about avoiding plagiarism. Every incoming student must complete the library’s “Plagiarism – Graduate Level” tutorial as a part of the required INFO 203 course.
The King Library’s Copyright and Fair Use subject guide organizes numerous resources on this topic.
For faculty members, the Faculty Handbook information about plagiarism outlines the university policies, provides some information about helping students avoid this problem, and provides a link to the University’s Turnitin service. Typically this is done via the Canvas Assignment Manager.
The iSchool T3 (Teaching Tips and Techniques) series has offered workshops on fair use considerations in course readings and prevention of plagiarism.
