Upon completion and final approval of the dissertation:
1. You will be provided a license agreement to review, (available in the top left Documents box on this web page), and if you agree with the terms for digitally displaying the dissertation/thesis in the library catalog, you are invited to sign it. You may also decline the offer, in which case, only paper archive copies will be provided to the library.
2. The signed agreement is received and filed with your dissertation documents in the appropriate office (School of Graduate Studies or Doctor of Ministry Office)
3. The dissertation secretary forwards the final approved digital copy of the dissertation/thesis to the James White Library.
4. Library staff complete routine cataloguing and add a link to the digital copy of the dissertation/thesis. The library record will include the abstract to maximize findability.
You indicate your approval through signing the license agreement, and the rest is taken care of by Andrews University personnel.
