To fulfill the graduation requirements and obtain your degree, you must deposit a final electronic copy of your thesis with the library:
The Maly Library will print and bind one copy of theses that receive a mark of B+ or higher to keep in the library collection.
If you would like to have a bound personal copy of your thesis, there are several online vendors from which to choose. Below are a few suggestions:
Upon the recommendation of the thesis defense panel (grade: A) and the permission of the student, a thesis may be added to OhioLINK’s Electronic Theses & Dissertations Center (ETD). If the thesis is approved for inclusion in the ETD, the student will submit it online with the help of the Maly Library staff. When submitting a thesis to the ETD, you give OhioLINK and the Athenaeum of Ohio permission to make your work available for open access on the Internet, including access through major Internet search engines.
