TELI x The Libraries: A project on Information Literacy and Academic Honesty

As a university student, you might be turning in 20-30 pieces of academic writing in a year from short reports to term papers. That could be quite daunting, especially for freshmen. TELI has teamed up with The Libraries to bring our students some tips and resources on improving your writing on these aspects:

  • Avoiding plagiarism
  • Doing citations properly with time-saving tools
  • Checking for originality with Turnitin


Please visit the playlist here to find out more. Our librarians will also conduct several face-to-face sessions with students in selected Common Core courses to dig deeper on information literacy skills. Get ready with your questions, and let’s be stronger writers together!
