The library does not make copies of theses or dissertations. Please contact the DSU Print Shop, to learn more about printing copies of your theses or dissertation. 

  • Please complete the Bindery Form to have your project bound.
  • The Karl Mundt Library keeps one bound, physical copy and one digital copy that becomes part of Beadle Scholar, the DSU institutional repository. 
  • Physical copies of bound thesis/dissertation are $20.00 each. 
  • There will be an extra $10 charge, per bound copy, for students who would like their thesis/dissertation sent to them via mail. The total for each bound copy sent via mail will be $30. Items over 400 pages or shipping internationally may incur an extra charge.
  • If you are on campus, please get in touch with Ellen Hoff in the Library to pick up your projects.
