Meet with a Librarian


We suggest that you meet with the Scholarly Communications Librarian early in the thesis process; they can help you with formatting and accessibility of your manuscript.

Additionally, if you are planning on using any images that you did not create (i.e. if you use any images, charts, maps, illustrations, etc. that someone else created), then you may run into some copyright issues. Make an appointment with the Scholarly Communications Librarian to identify potential conflicts. Start copyright permission process as early as possible in case you are denied permission and need to find substitute images.
