Abstract: The study gives an insight into the referencing behaviour and awareness of anti-plagiarism software among the academic community of the University of Kerala, Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala. Through a structured questionnaire a sample of 303 members were surveyed. It is found that more number of Ph.D and M.Phil students are involved in the preparation of dissertation than other academic work. Out of the total, majority of them use online resources followed by journals. Frequency of referencing habits show that 2/3rd of them always gives references in their work. A quarter of them came to know about antiplagiarism software through their research supervisor. ‘iThenticate’ is the antiplagiarism software known by more than 2/5th of them. Reasons for plagiarising described and the role played by the professional staff of the Kerala University Librar y System to propagate the anti-plagiarism software is highlighted
