Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to share with the wider academic community an example of one tool developed locally that can be a successful part of any institution's arsenal on the war against plagiarism.
Design/methodology/approach – Over the course of a year, the committee scripted, filmed, and edited the video portion of the tutorial. The assessment portion of the tutorial (an eight-question quiz drawn from a pool of 40 questions) was developed and refined in a series of pilot tests.
Findings – More than 80 percent of the 2,097 students who have completed the tutorial have correctly answered the question presented for seven of the eight outcomes.
Practical implications – This paper presents a method for integrating information literacy into the wider university community. The paper discusses a practical, effective method for teaching students about the ethical use of information.
Originality/value – The value of this paper is the demonstration of one method of educating students on the issue of plagiarism and how information literacy standards can be integrated into the curriculum and centralized through administrative and faculty support.
