ETD: Uploading Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Step Eight

Order Copies

Order copies of your thesis/dissertation.

  • You are required to order one library bound copy for your department. The website automatically defaults to the one departmental copy.
  • It is less expensive to order your personal copies during submission than after the thesis/dissertation is published.
  • Also, enter your shipping address – this can be different from your permanent or current address but should be the address that you would like your copies sent to.
  • The departmental copy is sent to the ETD Administrator in the UMass Lowell library.
  • Please note that this cannot be adjusted after the submission, so consider carefully how many personal copies you want.

Producing copies of your dissertation/thesis is least expensive at the time of publication. Share in these savings by taking advantage of this discount offer.

Each volume is rendered with respect for the scholarly research, featuring:
  • Brilliant white 32 lb. paper stock: acid-free and archival-grade, this photographic-quality stock is brighter and more opaque for better ink contrast and readability.
  • Any color graphics included in the digital copy of the thesis received by ProQuest can now be reproduced in color—at no extra charge! Photographs, charts, and other illustrations are printed as faithfully as they were provided electronically.
  • Durable hardbound copies are 8½”x11” with elegant black covers made from 2.5 mm-thick board covered in washable linen. Titles are embossed in gold foil along the spine of these handcrafted bindings and include generous margins.

Authors, please note:

  • Please inform us of any address change
  • All prices are subject to change
