Yes, the library prints and retains at least one printed copy of each student thesis and dissertation accepted by the Graduate School. For theses accepted between 1982 and 2008, Randall Library has a printed copy in the General Collection, which can be checked out, and a second printed copy in Archives. Starting in 2008, complete electronic copies of theses (ETDs) were required by the Graduate school, so all theses submitted after that are available electronically through the library catalog. Randall Library continues to produce a printed copy of each thesis published after 2008 to be retained in Archives.
