For Students Filing Research Theses or Dissertations
By submitting my first-deposit thesis or dissertation to the Graduate College, I am not making any decisions about later dissemination of my work. At the time of Final Deposit, I understand that I will be making the thesis or dissertation available to University Libraries for posting on the Iowa Digital Library. I understand also that it will be made available to ProQuest/UMI for electronic distribution according to more detailed instructions that I provide at the time of submission.
If any of the foregoing is unacceptable because you are preparing books, research articles, or patents, you may wish to consider asking the Graduate College for an embargo of your thesis or dissertation.
