dc.description Librarians at Austin Peay State University (APSU) in Clarksville, Tennessee, understand that it is essential for students to ethically access, analyze, use, and manage information in an increasingly complex environment. Teaching and informing students about academic honesty can be a positive experience and does not have to focus on the punitive. Too often students feel accused of plagiarism before they even begin their first college research assignment. Librarians became aware of this when the university began a nationally recognized institutional initiative focusing on efforts to improve student success and retention. This initiative extended to the library, where librarians provide the means for students to become information-smart citizens and lifelong learners. When the librarians teach academic honesty to students, they soon realized that their instruction frequently emphasized negative consequences over making the right choices from the start. Further, librarians did not take into consideration students' understanding of the research process. Armed with this new information, APSU librarians sought to tackle these issues in a positive manner by completely updating a web-based antiplagiarism tutorial. ultimately, they achieved positive results. en_US
