New site for HSC students

The Board of Studies has launched a new site All My Own Work designed to help HSC students "to follow the principles and practices of good scholarship" when preparing assessment tasks.

Among other things, it explains plagiarism, copyright compliance and addresses the thorny problem of collaborative learning, collusion and copying.

Avoid fines and invoices for lost items

Final exams have started and soon many of you will be leaving campus for the summer holidays or for good.

Before your last day on campus, have a look through your study area and return any library items you no longer require. This will ensure you avoid fines and invoices for items not returned after 30 days.

Not sure if you've returned everything? You can check your library record by

* calling the Library on 6659 3232
* emailling coffslibrary@scu.edu.au
* signing in to the catalogue


Sign in using your student ID or your library number (on your ID card, starts with 29339... or 25555...), the PIN is the last four digits of whichever number you used. Click on My Library Record at the top of the page and check Loans.

If your fines are below $20 at the end of the year, they will be waived.
