Visual and spatial plagiarism prevention resources

The definition of plagiarism in the visual and spatial arts is identical to what is typically thought of as plagiarism in written materials. That is, plagiarism is “the use in whole or in part of the work of others without crediting the source of the work through appropriate documentation” (University of Manitoba, 2010, p. 12). These resources will help you help your students avoid visual and spatial plagiarism.
