The Grace Hauenstein Library administers campus-wide access to Turnitin.com'sOriginality Checking, a service which helps faculty and students maintain Aquinas College's focus on integrity and academic honesty.
The Originality Checking software generates a report which compares submitted text against a continuously updated database of millions of pages of previously submitted student papers, journal articles and accessible internet sites. Faculty use the Originality Report to evaluate student work for proper citations and attribution, as well as for plagiarism.
Turnitin is now widely used in over 50 countries and in thousands of high schools and universities. It accepts submissions in 30 different languages, including French, Spanish, German and Japanese.
