Marymount faculty, students, and alumni may deposit an electronic or digital copy of their work to the institutional repository in order to archive and provide access to researchers on campus or around the world. For graduate students, you can also submit your dissertations and theses to Dissertations & Theses Global (ProQuest) database via Marymount ETD Administrator site. For more information on submitting your dissertations and theses, please visit our help guide on Submitting Your Dissertation/Thesis.
Why should I deposit my thesis or dissertation with Marymount University Archives?
Many students have already chosen to deposit their work with Marymount’s Digital Repository and for some programs, it is a requirement of degree completion. Depositing your work with the institutional repository enables students and faculty to publish work inside and outside of the Marymount community. The digital repository will enable prompt, secure web-based access to these documents, which will increase the visibility of MU’s scholars and contribute to academic scholarship by providing:
- Stable URLs for academic work
- Ongoing digital storage and preservation
Who can deposit?
Currently, all students, both present and alumni, and faculty can contribute their work to Marymount’s Digital Repository.
How do I deposit?
After receiving approval of your thesis or dissertation from your school, complete and submit a Student Submission Form.
If you are faculty, please complete the Faculty Submission Form.
This form is a non-exclusive transfer of ownership of a single copy of your thesis or dissertation to the University Archives. Students and faculty retain copyright to their own work. It allows the Archives to make your work available according to the release option you choose during submission, to make backup copies of your thesis or dissertation, and to migrate it to future file formats as necessary for preservation. We cannot upload any work without the accompanying Authorization Form. Once you have completed the Google form and attached the appropriate files, the University Archives will upload your work to the Digital Repository.
If you have any questions regarding the submission of your work, please contact Laura Khouvongsavanh at 703-526-6834.
