The Jereld R. Nicholson Library retains a bound copy of all senior theses in the Linfield College Archives. Some departments also keep bound copies, and students have the option to purchase personal copies.
All students who write senior theses should bring their signed copies to Amanda Fleming in the Jereld R. Nicholson Library (room 147). In addition to the signed copies, please print, complete, and submit a Thesis Checklist and a Copyright Release Form.
Q. How much does it cost?
A. Currently, personal copies are $16.00 each. There is no charge for the single copy which is retained in the Linfield College Archives.
Q. My advisor or department chair wants a copy. What do I do?
A. Print out an extra copy and submit it as well. Students are not charged for departmental copies.
Q. When can I expect my bound thesis?
A. Theses submitted in May are usually mailed to your forwarding address sometime in August. If your thesis is submitted at a different time of the year, make arrangements with Amanda Fleming.
Q. What sort of paper should I use to print my thesis?
A. Standard printer paper is fine! You may prefer to print on higher quality paper, but it is certainly not required.
Q. What about margins?
A. Standard document margins are acceptable.
Q. Should I print my thesis as single-sided or double-sided?
A. Double-sided copies are acceptable for personal copies, but the library copy should be single-sided.
Q. How do I get my thesis posted in DigitalCommons@Linfield?
A. If you've had your thesis approved for inclusion in DigitalCommons@Linfield, email a copy to firstname.lastname@example.org. Once your thesis has been processed and uploaded, we will notify you.
