Any MSU student or alumnus can deposit their MSU graduate thesis or dissertation in Scholars Junction.
Beginning in Summer 2019, graduating students are required to deposit their completed thesis or dissertation into Scholars Junction. MSU Libraries is currently migrating older theses and dissertations into Scholars Junction for long-term storage.
There are two ways to deposit your thesis or dissertation, depending on whether you have graduated or not.
The Office of Thesis and Dissertation Format Review will review your submission, edit its metadata if necessary, test the file to ensure it works correctly, and approve or disapprove your submission. If approved, you will receive an email with a link to your item record.
If you have already graduated and submitted an approved/signed electronic thesis or dissertation, then your work may already have been migrated into Scholars Junction, or is in the queue to be migrated. You need take no action.
If you graduated before MSU adopted electronic theses and dissertations, it may be possible to digitize your printed work. Contact Jenifer Ishee, Coordinator of the Digital Preservation and Access Unit, to request digitization and deposit of your thesis or dissertation.
