Not Observed     Insufficient      Moderate Use      Meets Criterion Completely

The School works to ensure that faculty members use course materials in a legal and ethical manner. SLIS encourages faculty to use the library’s 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 SLIS 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 Libr 203 course.

For faculty members, the Faculty Handbook information about plagiarism outlines the university policies, provides some information about helping students avoid this problem, and gives specifics about use of Turnitin. In addition, the SLIS Instructor D2L Tutorials present instructions on using the integration of Turnitin with assignment dropboxes.

The  SLIS T3 (Teaching Tips and Techniques) series has offered a section on fair use considerations in course readings.
