This workshop is geared toward those graduate students planning to defend a thesis or dissertation in May or August. Library staff members will lead the workshop informing you of the requirements for submitting print and electronic copies of your final work. They will discuss how and where to submit in print and electronically as well as where your electronic work will be available for the world to view and download! They will also discuss how to apply for an embargo of your work if necessary. This is a great opportunity to ask questions about title pages, signatures, abstracts, costs, editing, and general guidelines. Attending this workshop will help you understand all the steps in the process and will make a very stressful time in your graduate career proceed smoothly.
