    Purposes of these requirements

    The requirements for thesis/dissertation format guidelines serve four purposes:

    1.  To provide archived and preserved copies for the library and university

    2.  To provide the library with enough information to correctly catalog the thesis/dissertation for retrieval by library patrons

    3.  To provide the library patron with a legible copy

    4.   To provide print copy formatting recommendations when necessary of if the student chooses to embargo his or her work

    To achieve these purposes, the library requires students to submit an electronic copy of the thesis/dissertation by following the procedures outlined in this document.

    These procedures were formulated after a comparison of the thesis/dissertation guidelines of sister institutions in the State University System of Florida and several large private universities.  The UNF policies synthesize generally accepted archival deposit procedures found in universities in the United States, and strive to guarantee the preservation of the final results of a student's graduate research. These rules affect only the final document submitted to the library through the Graduate School Office. Students must still be guided by their faculty thesis advisors for the preparation and final approval of the thesis/dissertation.  Students should consult their own colleges and The UNF Graduate School for additional thesis/dissertation preparation guidelines.
