Plagiarism Goblins

"What is plagiarism? You know you aren't supposed to plagiarize, but sometimes the rules may be unclear" (Bogan, Information Literacy at HIU). For instance, did you know that you can plagiarize yourself? Notice how I included a self credit above so that I would not plagiarize myself?

 Brush up your ability to recognize and avoid plagiarism!

 Point your students to this fun game as a refresher!

Mary Broussard and Jessica Urich Oberlin of Snowden Library at Lycoming College created a game called Goblin Threat that makes learning about plagiarism fun! Link to it from our Information Literacy LibGuide.

Play the game
