Frostburg State University students will need to make an appointment with Annamarie Klose, Digital Projects Librarian, to submit their ETD. Please call her at 301-687-4252 or e-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org to make an appointment. She will assist students with submitting their manuscripts and any supplemental materials into FSU's ProQuest ETD site.
After the dissertation has been submitted, the Lewis J. Ort Library faculty and staff will review and check the dissertation's format prior to its final approval and submission to ProQuest.
Make sure to have ready the following for your ETD appointment:
Information you will need:
Questions to answer at your ETD Appointment:
* When submitting your ETD to ProQuest, it is recommended that you provide a personal e-mail address (e.g. Gmail, Yahoo) other than your FSU e-mail. This way, ProQuest can contact you about your dissertation years later for various reasons, e.g. lifting embargos, royalties.
* Make sure to have your FSU Student ID number for the ProQuest ETD submission. Your submission cannote be completed without this information.
* You'll need to copy and paste your abstract into the ETD submission. You can either copy and paste the abstract text from the dissertation PDF or from a separate text file (e.g. .docx, .txt, or .rtf) on the flash drive with your dissertation.
After your ETD submission has been reviewed and accepted by the Lewis J. Ort Library, you will be required to submit a final, printed copy of your dissertation to the library. This print copy will be bound and stored at the library. Instructions regarding the submission of the final, printed copy will be included with your ETD submission acceptance e-mail.
Please note: Dissertation binding purchased from FSU includes hardcovers.
