As a service to Queens College students, the Library will bind three copies of a Master Thesis (one each for the student, the Department, and the Reserve Library) at a cost of $35. Four copies can be bound at a cost of $55, and five for $60. Theses should be deposited in Bibliographic Access, Rosenthal Library, Room 201 between 9AM and 4PM Monday through Friday (except when the Library is closed).
When depositing the theses in the Library, students are requested to do the following:
- Have pages in the proper order;
- Have sponsor’s original signature on the first page of each copy;
- Bring the copies of the Bursar’s receipt.
Theses are sent for commercial binding. It takes approximately five weeks for bound theses to arrive in the issuing department. Graduates should communicate with their departmental secretary after six weeks in order to arrange for pick-up at the academic department.
Queens College has master’s theses contributed by graduate students from a wide range of academic departments. Many current graduate students find them useful as a guide to style and composition when writing their own thesis.
Most of these theses are available at the main Borrowing desk. Theses in art and music subjects are located in the Art Library or the Music Library, respectively, and must be requested at those libraries.
Theses copies can be used in the Library only. Call the Borrowing desk ahead of time at (718) 997-3702 to schedule an appointment for viewing these items. Specify the call number of the item you will want to see.
