Thesis and Dissertation Binding
The library will bind personal copies of theses and dissertations on a cost recovery basis for the bindery and shipping fees. There are no charges for library staff time and effort. Costs are $15.00 per copy, plus $5.00 shipping per copy, if applicable. No shipping charge is incurred if the bound copy is picked up at the library. Costs are subject to change. Payment is taken up front when the thesis or dissertation is dropped off at the library front desk.
The library cannot take theses, dissertations, and payments from April 15 through June because of university and library fiscal end-of-year deadlines. It may take up to 6 months for a thesis or dissertation to return from the bindery.
Some binderies and other companies offer self-service binding of theses. The companies below are offered as an alternative to going through the library for binding. The library does not endorse any particular company, and takes no liability for the work done by these companies. The contact information below is subject to change.
