    Yes. Other choices are blue, red, or gray.
  3. Can I have the lettering done in something other than gold?
    No.
  4. What information will be on the book?
    The spine will contain a brief title (55 characters including spaces and punctuation), authorís last name, date, and UNLV imprint in gold lettering. The front cover will have the complete title, authorís full name, date, and UNLV imprint in gold lettering.
  5. What will it cost?
    $30 per copy if you or your designated person picks it up.
    $45 per copy if we ship to you via FedEx ground/home delivery (contiguous U.S.)
  6. Can I alter the information that appears on the spine or the front cover??
    Generally, no.  You can provide a brief version of the title for the spine (limited to 55 characters) on the BINDING REQUEST FORM.  But if you have a special request, contact Pat McCarty.
  7. How long will it take?
    Barring schedule problems, your bound volume(s) will be available in 8-10 weeks from the time you deliver them to us.
  8. How many copies can I have bound?
    As many copies as you want to pay for.
  9. Where do I deliver my thesis/dissertation to be bound?
    The Circulation Desk on the first floor of Lied Library.  Full payment is required at time of delivery.  A completed BINDING REQUEST FORM is also required. 
  10. Will the Library make copies of my thesis/dissertation for me?
    No. You must provide all copies at the time you submit the BINDING REQUEST FORM.
  11. How should my thesis/dissertation copy(s) be packaged?
    Each copy to be bound should be complete as a finished work and contained in an envelope or a box. Items are bound as delivered—we do not check for errors.  If there are pages missing or out of order, the item will be bound with missing or out of order pages.
  12. How will accompanying materials (maps, charts, CDs, etc.) be handled?
    Tell us that you have supplemental materials on the BINDING REQUEST FORM and place the supplemental materials with each copy. The supplemental materials will be put in a pocket in the back of the bound volume. Printed materials such as maps, charts, etc. should be folded smaller than 8.5 x 11 inches so they can be inserted in a pocket.

    From the UNLV Libraries website.

  16. Can someone else pick up my bound volume(s) for me?
    Yes, as long as you give them permission. If you know someone else will pick them up, please tell us on the BINDING REQUEST FORM.
