To All Faculty,
Library Services, Information Resources and Technology(LSIRT)is pleased
to announce Turnitin, a plagiarism detection service, is now available
to all UMass Dartmouth faculty.
Turnitin evaluates the originality of studentsâ€™ work by comparing their

generated that highlights text matches to other documents. Faculty will
then need to review and evaluate the report to determine if plagiarism
