Steps for submission of dissertations to the Library

Dissertation Manuscripts must be submitted to the library through The Director of the College of Education and Human Services Office of Graduate Studies. Once the library receives the dissertation, it will begin the process for copyright and electronic publication. Bound dissertations may be ordered directly from our publisher, Proquest Dissertations and Theses. Orders may be placed online. Your publication number will be provided to you within two weeks of submission of your manuscript to the Lindenwood Library. Please note that online ordering can only be completed once your dissertation has been published online through PQDT Open. This occurs approximately 2 to 3 months after submission. If you would like to place your order immediately, please use this form and submit via mail. It is vital that authors notify the publisher of address changes immediately so that orders are received.
