Several documents may be useful once you are in the last phase of your dissertation. A link to the Lawrence Tech Brochure is below. Proquest also has many tips on their website.
Uploading to Proquest Questions:
Should I allow Search Engine Access? Yes, this refers to indexing of your dissertation and you want the broadest exposure to your work. If you have chosen the Traditional Publishing model, researchers will find the citation and abstract but will not have immediate access to the full-text of the dissertation.
(If you are completing a master's thesis, please see information in the General Library Guide.)
More information about the models is available within your Proquest account.
Every doctoral student will need to set up an account at LTU's Proquest Dissertation site (link below). However, the library recommends not submitting the dissertation PDF etc. until after making an appointment to drop off copies of the dissertations for binding. The library representative will provide more detailed instructions at that time.
Remember, Lawrence Tech Library will handle the copyright registration of your work on your behalf through Proquest. It is the student's responsibility to upload the dissertation PDF to Proquest.
If there are any questions about the binding or uploading of your dissertation, contact the library at 248-204-3000 or email the reference desk at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have questions regarding paper quality, binding, library requirements, etc., please contact the library prior to printing your copies. Once the copies are printed you may make an appointment to bring them in by calling 248.204.3000 or emailing email@example.com. To ensure binding in a particular month, please deliver the printed copies to the library the Friday BEFORE the scheduled pick-up date. The turn-around time for binding is 4 weeks.
