washington and lee student work -- honors theses and other material
Washington and Lee University students may be invited to submit academic work for preservation in the University Library's digital and/or printed collections. In each case, a permission form should accompany the work.
All students completing honors theses should submit a copy to the University Library for preservation and research purposes.
Each student determines whether access to his/her thesis should be online or in paper form.
- W&L now has the capability of preserving and making available in online form the full contents of a student's honors thesis via W&L's Digital Repository -- but only with the permission of the student.
- Printed copies of honors theses are maintained in the library's Special Collections.
Submitting the Thesis
Students who are honors candidates should submit a printed or digital copy of the completed thesis to the University Library, accompanied by a completed permission form.
The form's basic options are
- The content of your thesis will be available online to all users, as in this example.
- Or, the content of your thesis will be available online only to members of the W&L community, as in this example. Thus, only members of the University community with valid W&L logins may access your thesis online.
- Or, the content of your thesis will be available only in printed form in Special Collections, as in this example.
Students who wish to have a copy of their thesis printed and bound -- at their own expense -- should contact Thesis on Demand.
OTHER STUDENT WORK
Students submitting other academic work should use this completed permission form .
