Submitting Your (e)Honors Thesis to LITS

Spring seems to have sprung (finally!) and that means it'll soon be time for some of our seniors to finish up their theses.

If you're working on a thesis, remember that you need to submit an electronic (digital) copy of the final version to LITS by no later than July 1.  Starting this year, LITS no longer requires a paper version of the thesis, so you'll only have to submit the one e-copy (check with your thesis advisor on any departmental requirements for turning in paper versions).

If you have any supporting material for your thesis, like digital images or video, you can submit those files along with your text.  Be sure to save them as one of the accepted file formats, and take a look at these other helpful tips for preparing your e-thesis for submission.  LITS has over four hundred e-theses in our Student e-Theses Collection.

Microsoft Word getting you down? Not sure how to convert a TIFF to a JPEG? Drop in to the Information Commons (IC) or send a note to the LITS Helpdesk--they can assist you with all sorts of thesis-related technology questions. For questions about submitting your thesis to LITS, contact Digital Assets & Preservation Services (DAPS).
