Default Plagarism Detection

I work in further education and for the third time in a fortnight a student has handed in work that is clearly plagarised. The first two were easy to find the original sources for but the latest is not so easy. I would like a freeware that will help me find the sources of plagarised work. Any help appreciated.

I'm pretty sure that the Gizmo's Princess (Rhiannon ) published something along these lines a while ago?

Maybe someone with a better memory than mine (Jojo) will remember what and where.

Try Dupli checker, a free online plagiarism detection tool, and see if that works for you.

Thanks guys.
As i turns out i managed eventually to find the actual source of my student's "work". The work in question comes from the University of Paisley (Scotland). Dupli checker reports no plagarism detected but i have the source pdf from which the work was plagarised. Worth a look though so thanks Jojo
