Letter from Library Director

Dear Honors Student:

It is my understanding that you are currently engaged in an honors project. One of the requirements for completion is that you deposit a copy of the project with the College Archives housed in the Snowden Library by the last day of the current semester, (Appropriate day/date given). This copy will be bound and becomes a part of the permanent archival collection. Your project must have a title page in the correct format (see example enclosed). We have also included a brief checklist of suggestions so that your project will have a professional appearance.

When you bring the deposit copy and other copies you want bound to the Snowden Library, please see Wilma Reeder or Susan Beidler in the Collection Management Services Office (through the double doors next to the elevator).

You will also need to deposit a digital copy of your completed project in Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF). Instructions for converting your paper to PDF are available at http://www.lycoming.edu/library/archives/howTo.aspx. You may email the digital copy of your paper including the signature page as an attachment to Wilma Reeder. Her email address is reeder@lycoming.edu. Also included with this letter is the Student Research Release Form. Please read this carefully and then fill in the form indicating your instructions for future access to your project. Return the form to Wilma Reeder when you bring in the print copy of your project.

If you would also like a copy (or copies) bound for yourself, we will be happy to do that at the same time. The cost per copy for binding is less than $10.00. To utilize this service, you will need to provide us with as many copies of your project as you want bound and select the color you want for the binding. You will be billed at the time the book(s) are returned from the bindery. When we receive your payment, your copy will be sent to you, so please give us your billing and shipping address when dropping off your project.

Thank you for your cooperation. You might be surprised at the number of students who want to look at honors projects from past years.
