THE LIBRARY IS OPEN ONLINE! Our physical space remains inaccessible. Library resources and services are available online.
Proof of graduation will be withheld until all holds with University offices are cleared.
Embargo (delayed release) options determine when a dissertation, thesis, or capstone project will be made publicly available online. Graduates should review these options with a trusted advisor prior to deposit. The initial embargo selection (0-2 years) may be changed at any time after submission, with the option to renew as the embargo nears expiration.
Authors retain copyright for all work submitted to CUNY Academic Works and ProQuest. Graduates may elect to assign a Creative Commons license to their work.
Congratulations! Your deposit is complete and has been accepted by the library. Notification that the library deposit has been completed will be sent via email to the graduating student and the Registrar’s office will be notified.
Does your dissertation/thesis include a significant digital component that the library should archive?
If so, please read the Digital Projects page well in advance of your deposit and consult the library's Digital Project Documentation Guidelines. The library can provide guidance in determining what to submit to the library; please contact the Dissertation Office to set up a consultation.
