Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 8 Up

The 12 essays in this volume, all reprinted from other sources, look at the issue from a variety of perspectives and discuss some of the many ways that institutions are combating the problem. A common theme of many of the writings is that the Internet, and access to countless sources of information, has made copying or buying another's work easier than ever before. While none of the writers offers up a simple solution, many examine the myriad ways of dealing with plagiarism, both proactive and reactive, including more stringent honor codes, further education, and the use of online subscriptions to companies like Turnitin.comthat identify plagiarized work. Unfortunately, the selections are uneven in both quality and value, and range from the mundane to the provocative. Two standouts include John F. Kavanaugh's "Emphasizing Personal Integrity Will Prevent Plagiarism" and Michael Thompson's "Most Plagiarism Is Not Easy to Detect." Accompanying photographs add little to the overall quality of the book, and the graphs and statistics are generally more confusing than edifying. Teachers and librarians will find several of the writings useful as discussion starters, thus making this a good addition for libraries looking to beef up their selections on the topic.-Jody Kopple, Shady Hill School, Cambridge, MA
