Handing in a Thesis: Part 1

It’s that time of the year and people are busily adding their finishing touches to their theses. It’s always a happy moment when we can sign off and forward:

Independent Study Final Completion and Library Acceptance Form,”  to the registrar.

We’ve been getting quite a few questions lately regarding theses. So, we thought it might be a good idea to post some of the more frequently asked ones on our blog.

Q1: How many copies do I need to give to the library?

A1: Two, one will be bound and added to the collection (the circulation copy), the other will be put into a manila envelope unbound and placed in the “locked area,” (the archival copy) – it’s a back-up copy in case the bound copy becomes damaged or lost. If you want a copy for yourself (a personal copy), then you should present three copies (or more).

Q2: How much does a personal copy cost?

A2: They’re $15:00 each. There’s a choice of colors, and you can have either gold or white lettering on the spine. Circulating copies are always dark green. You’ll need to fill out a “Request for Binding of Personal Copy of Independent Study,” form.

Q3: I’ve heard we have to use “acid free” paper – is that true?

Acid Free Paper

A3: Yes, you have to use acid free paper. Over time paper that is not acid free tends to crumble. The good news is that most paper today is acid free. The paper in the library’s copiers is acid free. If in doubt, check the packaging of the paper you are thinking of using (see above).
