Plagarism and Copyright Webpages

Late in 2018, we decided it was time to revamp the plagiarism and copyright webpages. The decision was made to bring more awareness to the plagiarism resources provided on the Library website. Brandi Bengtson, the Electronic Services Specialist – Web, created what is called a landing page, a single webpage that is created on the ‘back end’ of our website through WordPress and the use of html in order to help the page you see be as clear and concise as it is able to be. The Bellevue University Library website has many landing pages such as “Find,” “Home,” and “Ask a Librarian.”

This page is a useful tool to highlight our Copyright Center, a LibGuide created with a myriad of resources that allow patrons to better understand copyright. The page has other resources such as Turnitin, NoodleTools, and links to style guides such as APA, along with a description of what plagiarism is, as well as simple steps to avoid plagiarism. The page was launched in May, 2019, and additions will be made as new resources become available.

The Plagiarism and Copyright Resources page can be found via the navigation bar at the top of the Bellevue University Library home page. Just hover over “Services” and click on the title from the drop down menu. It can also be found by clicking the Services page via the navigation bar and clicking on the title from the “Research Tools” section of the page.

      It would depend on how it was being used and brevity of its use. If you cite it and use quotes as a reference you are OK; however, if you are using more than 10% of the lyrics in any other use, then yes it would be plagiarism.
