FORMATTING OF SENIOR HONORS THESES FOR SUBMISSION TO THE LIBRARY ARCHIVES

Get the latest information about archiving theses here

From Karen Adler Abramson, University Archives & Special Collections (2007):

The Robert D. Farber University Archives collects and houses senior honors theses produced by Brandeis undergraduate students. Senior honors theses play an important role in documenting the history and evolution of undergraduate scholarship at Brandeis. They are bound and catalogued in LOUIS and then exported to WorldCat (a national bibliographic database); as a result, we receive many requests for them from members of the Brandeis and outside research communities.

With that in mind, I am writing to remind you to send copies of all senior honors theses produced in your department or program to the University Archives--along with the authors' completed and signed release forms granting other researchers permission to reproduce their theses for research/educational purposes. You may download a copy of the thesis release form from the Archives & Special Collections website. Click on the link, "Download senior honors thesis release form [PDF]."

We ask that students submit *loose* (that is, unstapled), *unbound,* clean copies of their theses for the Archives, which will then be bound in hard-cover by the library.

We also ask that students include the following information (in no particular order) on the title pages of their theses, so that they may be catalogued correctly in LOUIS:

Title
Author
Senior Honors Thesis
Department(s) of _____
Brandeis University
Year

At the end of the academic year, please send one copy of all senior honors theses, with their corresponding release forms, to my attention at:

University Archives
Mailstop 045

I hope you will join me in preserving the work of our undergraduate student scholars.  If you have any questions, feel free to contact me via email or phone (x64701). Thank you, as always, for your time and your cooperation.

Sincerely,
Karen Adler Abramson
