Participants were also taken through the JKUAT Digital Repository and how to use OpenDoar to access theses and dissertations in various universities. To increase one’s visibility, members were urged to register with Google Scholar. Members were informed of the Anti-Plagiarism Software (Plagiarism Detector) which the university has acquired for use by postgraduate students and their supervisors to ensure quality research.
While thanking the Library Staff for this sensitization, the Chairman of Department Dr. M. Muvengei noted that, the staff members and postgraduate students have been enlightened on the available electronic information which is quite useful in the research and teaching. He urged all the members to make use of these electronic tools. He also requested the University Librarian to avail the Plagiarism Detector software to the departmental members of staff and postgraduate students who are willing to make use of this facility.
