Thesis Binding


Students should seek assistance from their thesis advisors for proper formatting and paper requirements. Upon completion, print copies of the theses including the signature page should be brought to the library's circulation desk. Students may print and fill the Thesis Binding Receipt (pdf) before coming to the library.           

The thesis and copies should be delivered either in a box with copies separated by colored sheets of paper or in separate folders. The signature page must be complete and include appropriate dates. The original copy should be clearly marked.

Checks or money orders should be made out to the National Library Bindery. Costs for binding are as follows:

1 bound copy       $45
2 bound copies     $45
3 bound copies     $58.50
4 bound copies     $78
5 or more copies   $19.50 each

Upon return from the bindery, one bound copy of each thesis is cataloged and shelved in the library's circulating collection. The unbound original is placed in the Special Collections vault. All other copies are returned to the department.

Theses and checks may be dropped off at the library's Circulation Desk whenever the library is open.
