To Share or Not to Share...That Is the Question

What's Copyright? Why should I care? How does it affect me as a student, and how will it affect me once I graduate? If you want to know more, join Alana Zanbilowicz, MRU's Copyright Advisor, as she explores these questions (and more) in a fun and informative workshop!

Panel Discussion
The Dark Side of File-Sharing Sites

File-sharing sites (e.g., Course Hero) allow students to share course-related documents. While it might seem fine to post documents like notes taken in class, posting other types of documents can be problematic. And once you've posted something, (no matter what type of document it was), there can be unintended consequences. Learn more at our panel discussion where faculty, student and staff perspectives on this issue will be represented and real-life scenarios will be discussed.

Free pizza and coffee will be provided!

APA is the most prevalent referencing style on campus since it is used in so many disciplines (e.g., Business, Nursing, Education, Child Studies, Criminal Justice). Learn and practice the basics of in-text citation and the reference list.
