The library binds culminating documents for the university and for students.  These can include honors theses, master's theses, recital papers, or research papers. 
 
Documents should be delivered to Jenni MacLean in the Collection Management office on the 2nd floor of Bunch Library. 
 
Each department has its own requirements on how many copies should be bound.  Personal copies are $10.00 each.  Personal copies with accompanying items are $14.00.  Please pay with cash or check (made out to Lila D. Bunch Library).
 
Each copy, whether personal or for the department, should include a signature page with all required signatures.
 
Copies should be delivered inside of a box with a sheet of colored paper separating each copy.  Copies should be printed on thesis paper.
 
A Binding Request Form (see below) should accompany each group of documents.
 
Although documents should be delivered soon after completion, the library has no firm deadline for receiving them.  Please follow the timeline set by your department.
 
Documents will generally return from the bindery within 6-8 weeks.  Students who have personal copies to pick up will receive an email when their item(s) are ready.
 
For any further questions, please email or call Jenni MacLean at Jennifer.maclean@belmont.edu or 615-460-5457.
