How to Order Print Copies

Options for students who would like to obtain a print copy of their thesis:

NOTE:  Upon completion of thesis requirements the student will submit the thesis for electronic preservation to ProQuest Electronic Theses and Dissertations.  The library’s collection development policy prefers the acquisition of electronic resources over print in order to provide the most equitable access to all of Brenau’s academic community, both on and off campus; however students may have some reason to choose to have their theses bound.  In some circumstances the department may require hardbound copies of the thesis in addition to the copy provided to the library collection. 

Students who wish to upload their theses electronically are not obligated to provide a bound copy to the library.  Students who do not upload their theses electronically must provide a bound print copy to the library.

ProQuest - Order Personal Hardbound Copies

Students who upload their theses electronically may additionally purchase a bound print copy of their thesis through ProQuest during the upload process.  See Electronic Theses Submission Instructions - Students for more information.

HF Group (Thesis On Demand) - Order Personal Hardbound Copies & Send the Library a Hardbound Copy

Students who do not submit theses to ProQuest must use the HF Group’s Thesis On Demand ( service to order hardbound copies. 

See the document Submitting a Thesis for Binding – Student Instructions for more details.
