Plagiarism & Library Awareness Session

Have you ever asked why referencing is so important for your academic work? Or what plagiarism actually entails?

KSU’s Education Office, in collaboration with the University of Malta Library, is once again organising an informative seminar on the 10th of December 2014 which will allow students to understand how crucial proper referencing in academic work is. The session presented by Prof. Patrick J. Schembri will be beneficial for future coursework.

During the Seminar, tips will be given on how one can avoid Plagiarism. Assistant Registrars Elisa Vella and Carmen Mangion will be presenting guidelines on what defines plagiarism, its avoidance and related consequences.

The second part of the seminar is about how with just one single search, you can discover books and dissertations held in the Library, as well as full online texts, journal articles and other information resources.. The session will help you make the best use of the new and improved search interface on the Library website http://www.um.edu.mt/library

The venue will be ICT Lab, Room 1,Level -1, Block B, Faculty of ICT . Kindly note that available places are limited so book you place by sending an email to education@ksu.org.mt
