From School Library Journal:

This compilation of chapters by various contributors runs the gamut from philosophical musings to practical tips and advice. The writings in Part I deal with understanding the problem, its causes, and challenges in a technological society in which paper mills and other easy fixes are readily available to students. A special focus on the challenges for ESL students is included. Part II supplies ideas for combating plagiarism. Instructional, administrative, and cultural changes within the academic community are suggested. Techniques for teaching citations, the principles of academic honesty, definitions of intellectual property, and an annotated bibliography of professional resources are included in Part III. Each chapter concludes with a "Works Cited" section of current resources. An accompanying CD-ROM provides a quick way to access the numerous Web sites listed in the title, a way to view and use the sample tutorials, and the ability to insert the files provided to create new materials. This excellent title will appeal to educators at both the secondary and post-secondary levels who are interested in better understanding the problem and taking the practical strategies needed to combat it.-Beth Jones, Shelby County High School, Shelbyville, KY

Review:

"The accompanying CD-ROM enhances an already excellent text with hyperlinks, three tutorials, and an interactive quiz. All educators and librarians could benefit from reading this guide. Highly recommended."
