PURCHASING A COPY OF A DISSERTATION
If you wish to purchase your own copy of a dissertation, the Interlibrary
Borrowing office can order an UNBOUND shrink-wrapped copy through the Dissertation Express service of UMI.
The normal cost for such copies is approximately $30.00. We will cover $10.00 of this cost. This will
leave costs to you of $20.00. If you want us to purchase a copy:
- Go back on your browser and fill out the Dissertation Request form fully,
just as if you were asking to borrow a copy.
- Authorize charges of up to $20.00.
- Add a note saying that you authorize us to PURCHASE a copy from UMI Dissertation Express.
Doing so will obligate you to remit $20.00 when the dissertation arrives.
While UMI has access to most North American dissertations from the last forty years as well as some older ones,
there are exceptions due to the date or policies of certain schools.
If you want to purchase a bound copy or a microfilm copy of this dissertation at somewhat higher rates,
you can order them directly yourself by going to http://www.umi.com/products_umi/dissertations/individuals.shtml.
