Research Help!

Plagiarism is stealing another person’s intellectual or artistic work.   Learn more about plagiarism by watching these two short videos from WriteCheck.com, a division of TurnItIn, LLC.

One of the best ways to avoid plagiarism is to begin your research assignment immediately so you have time to properly summarize and paraphrase ideas that support what you are trying to say.


Use the following links to find information, cite your sources, and give credit to authors by creating a bibliography and footnotes.

Research with SLED (Statewide Library Electronic Doorway):  a Database paid for by the State of Alaska for use by Alaskans.

  • SLED for Alaskans:  http://sled.alaska.edu/

  • I recommend the using Academic Search Premier in the “A-Z SLED Databases” and “College & K-12”

  • By logging in (accounts are free), you can save articles for later reading and easily create a bibliograghy of the articles you have found.
