There are over 120 theses that have been digitized that have not been officially “cataloged”. For ILL purposes, when we get a request for a theses or dissertation, we then check the book to see if we it’s available online or if we have permission to send a copy.
IF you find a thesis that has been digitized, but due to it’s age or the author’s choice it is not available online we do have access to the scanned digital file which will save us from scanning it again. Look on S:\\Theses. They are all there by thesis number.
Once the theses have been cataloged, they will come up full text but if there are restrictions,the file will only be able to be viewed here in the library. We will then be able to grab the file from there.
I have spent a little time cleaning up the wiki. I have FINALLY finished working on pages on Theses and Disserations and assorted pages dealing with Full text documents. The Daily Task list has been updated to ILLiad processes. If you see any pages that don’t seem up to date, let me know and I will attempt to clean them up as soon as time allows!
For Lending purposes and for all NON-RECIPROCAL libraries:
Full text thesis or dissertation: If we are only sending a link the cost is: $15 charge.
SCANNED COPY of thesis or dissertation, then we charge $15 for the first 20 pgs and $.25 per page thereafter.
Update it in ILLiad as follows:
1) Go to Search Stacks/Update Stacks Search: enter the TN number
a. IF sending a link: select FOUND & apply the $15 charge.
b. IF we are scanning, count the pages. Calculate this and be sure the lending library’s max cost can cover the charge. Enter the number of pages, into the “Pages” box on the update page, select found and finish the billing. Send the item to the back room to be scanned.
Then if sending the link:
2) Go back to EDIT, search for the record. Select EMAIL “Full Text Thesis/Dissertation”
3) In Consuls find the link to the document, copy it and paste in to the email, then hit send.
