Augustana Center for Teaching and Learning
As a follow-up to the front page narrative on academic integrity, we would like to provide some sources and examples to assist with the explanation of plagiarism in your classrooms. It is important to remember that citation protocol can be different in certain disciplines, so providing citation guidelines would reinforce the appropriate citation protocol for your class.
The liberal studies, first-year program uses the following resources to help students learn about the correct citation of sources. The Tredway Library website has excerpts from these resources for easy access for both faculty and students.
- Hacker, Diana. “A Writer’s Reference,” 5 th edition. Boston/ New York: Bedford/St. Martins, 2003.
- Harvey, Michael. “The Nuts and Bolts of College Writing.” Indianapolis/Cambridge: Hackett Publishing Company., Inc., 2003.
- Harvey, Gordon. “Writing with Sources: A Guide for Students.” Indianapolis/Cambridge: Hackett Publishing Company., Inc., 1998.
The library site also includes information on other common citation styles such as APA, CSE, MLA and Chicago.
The Reading/Writing Center is also a great source for students to seek out advice on the different citation protocols. Reminding students of this resource, especially if they are a bit unclear about a particular citation question in a paper, will encourage a more pro-active approach to the correct citation of sources.
