Memorandum To: Dr. Sona Andrews, Provost From: Jonathan Sanders Subject: Analysis of Proposed Plagiarism-Checking Service Date: 30 January 2007 This memo presents our analysis and recommendation concerning the adoption of a plagiarism- checking service at Boise State University. Summary Plagiarism is a problem for everyone within the academic community. In order to stop this harmful and illegal activity at Boise State University, we have considered adopting a plagiarism- checking service offered by Plagiarism.org. While there are some disadvantages to adopting the proposed service, we feel that the advantages outweigh the potential problems. Accordingly, we recommend the adoption of this service on a limited, trial basis. The Nature of the Plagiarism Problem The Internet has made it possible to access information very easily. In fact, it is so easy to find information that, when plagiarism is suspected, the instructor doesn’t know where to begin to track down the original information because there is so much to choose from.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
