Library: Turnitin Information

Instructors and other University staff may use Turnitin or other technology resources to support the development and assessment of authentic student writing. Turnitin is an online service that can find and highlight matching or unoriginal text in a written assignment. It uses data-mining to compile a large database of electronic academic materials that it indexes and stores. Faculty can send their students' assignments to the Turnitin database or else set up the platform to allow students to send their own assignments to the service for review.

To learn how to access and use Turnitin, please view Student Instructions or Faculty Instructions or visit the Turnitin FAQ.

Additional resources to support students in authentic learning are available on the Academic Integrity page.
