Promoting Academic Integrity the Library Way

Librarians have always had a fundamental role to play in promoting academic integrity, and for Piero Cavaleri, Chief Librarian at LIUC Cattaneo University, Italy his systematic approach to implementing Turnitin was successful in raising awareness of the issues amongst the student population. The positive emphasis placed by Piero on appropriate use of sources of information coupled with development of academic writing skills earned him a Turnitin Academic Integrity Award. Use of Turnitin as part of this journey for students was supplemented by one-to-one tutorial support in academic writing. Piero’s influence now extends beyond his immediate university and to the wider Italian academic community. Read Piero's case study.
