LIBRARY SERVICES DURING MOVEMENT CONTROL ORDER
Users can receive the help of librarians through the Live Chat Reference Service in the library’s mobile application, WhatsApp and phone calls that operate daily from 8 am to 5 am. Through this application, students and lecturers could communicate directly with librarians on any issues related to information seeking.
Turnitin is a ‘text-matching’ software which is designed to educate students regarding appropriate citation and referencing techniques. Turnitin is also used to provide USIM with confidence in the academic integrity of students work. Turnitin does this by comparing a student submission against an archive of Internet documents, Internet data, a repository of previously submitted papers, and subscription repository of periodicals, journals, and publications. Turnitin then creates an ‘Originality Report’ which can be viewed by both lecturers and students, which identifies where the text within a student submission has matched another source.
It is important to note that Turnitin does not detect plagiarism. Turnitin will only match the text within a student’s assignment to text located elsewhere (e.g. found on the Internet, within journals or on databases of student papers). Correct interpretation of these results by both lecturers and students is essential for the successful use of Turnitin.
