Turnitin is a tool to prevent plagiarism. Your instructor will give you details about submitting your paper to his/her course assignment on Turnitin. It will then identify 'unoriginal content' by highlighting similarities in its bank of internet, academic and student paper content. If the Similarity Report has been made available by your instructor, you will see similar or matching text:

For more information, see the Student Quick Start Guide on the Turnitin website.

For help with citing your sources, contact a librarian.  Students and faculty are welcome to drop in with questions or set up in-depth research appointments with a librarian. 

The Research Assistance Desk is staffed by professional librarians during business (day-time) hours Monday to Friday.

Our librarians will gladly assist you, either at the Research Assistance desk or by phone or email.
