Answers to Some Common Questions:
How many copies will I need?
What type of paper should I use?
Uploading to Proquest Questions:
Should I allow Search Engine Access? "Yes". This refers to indexing your dissertation. For the broadest exposure of your work, you want it indexed by major search engines. 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 email@example.com.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. To ensure binding in a particular month, please deliver the printed copies to the library the Thursday BEFORE the scheduled pick-up date. The turn-around time for binding has been 4-5 weeks, but is subject to change.
