Digital Assets & Preservation Services (DAPS) administers the MHC Institutional Digital Archive Student Electronic Thesis Collection. The collection was established in 2005 and contains over four hundred honors theses created by MHC seniors from across the disciplines. By archiving your honors work in the Institutional Archive, you are contributing to the continuing legacy of excellence in scholarship at MHC.
Additionally, paper copies of all honors theses are housed in Archives and Special Collections. You can search for all theses in the Library catalog.
All MHC students who complete an honors thesis must submit an electronic copy to LITS by July 1st of their graduating year. LITS no longer requires a paper version of the honors thesis.
A step-by-step guide to submitting your thesis, including the link to submit, can be found here. You can submit accompanying/supporting thesis materials, such as digital video, audio, or images, along with your thesis text to the electronic collection!
Please consult with the Technology Assistants/Consultants at the Information Commons Desk for help with converting images to JPEG format, converting documents to PDF, Microsoft Word document formatting, and printing.
