There is no library submission requirement for dissertations or theses. The Library will create a print copy of your manuscript for the Alkek Library from the electronic version you submitted. No payment is necessary.
Students have the option of providing additional copies of their manuscript to have bound as personal copies or department copies. These can be dropped off at the Circulation Desk at the Alkek Library between the hours of 8am and 5pm, Monday - Friday. Payment must be made at the time the copies are deposited at the Circulation Desk. Payment can be made in cash, credit card, or check.
It is your responsibility to ensure that copies are collated properly before submitting them to the Library. Bindery does not alter the arrangement, direction, or order of pages.
You can choose your own 8 1/2 by 11 inch paper for personal and department copies. The paper does not need to be archival quality. Print on one side only with 1 1/2 inch left margin and 1 inch margin for all others. The copies must be clean, no inked corrections.
If you have any questions regarding fees or the submission, please contact the Bindery Manager, Shirley Lipinski, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
