Ah--another semester completed. It is quiet in the Writng Center. The lights are out. The door is shut. I miss the bustle.

I know I haven't posted anything in a long time, but I would like to respond to the question regarding plagiarism. Occasionally at our meetings, we talk about the issue of plagiarism. We usually talk about plagiarism in a tutorial if parts of the paper seem different from the rest or if the student asks for help with quoting and/or citing sources. It's definitely a delicate issue when it comes to identifying plagiarism and whether the tutor should mention possible plagiarism to the professor. I'd also love to hear any additional comments, ideas, etc. about dealing with plagiarism. Anne, undergrad tutor, Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN
