Binding arrangements for student, program office and/or supervisor and co-supervisor copies have been set up on a self serve basis with Wallaceburg Bookbinding.
There are two methods for having your copies bound:
Wallaceburg Bookbinding has a template for Ontario Tech Grad Studies for the placement of lettering on the theses cover to help standardize the presentation of author, degree and year on the spine and title, author and university name on the front cover.
Master’s theses are bound in royal blue (# 460) and dissertations are bound in black (#750) with the information stamped on the cover in white for the School of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies copies. Personal student or other copies may be done in colours of your choice.
A print and electronic copy of every student thesis is forwarded to the Library by the School of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies for its archival collection and for electronic publication. The print copy does not circulate.
The electronic copy is posted in E-Scholar, a digital repository of Ontario Tech research provided by the Library. E-Scholar collects, preserves, and showcases the academic work of the Ontario Tech community, including faculty publications and graduate theses and dissertations. Materials in e-scholar are openly available to the world and discoverable through search engines such as Google Scholar.
In addition, the Library submits student theses and dissertations to Library and Archives Canada, allowing them to become available online on AMICUS via the Library and Archives Canada's Thesis Canada Program. Students may also choose to publish their thesis or dissertation through ProQuest free publishing service (optional) in which case they must sign the ProQuest Publishing Agreement license form.
The Library does not acquire master's projects or major papers for its print archive collection. If students wish to submit an electronic copy of their project/paper for inclusion in the Library's institutional repository E-scholar (this is voluntary) they may do so through their program office.
The submission must have three files, each in PDF format:
