Procedure for Binding your Thesis or Dissertation

When you drop your thesis or dissertation off at the library, there are two forms that you must fill out.  These can be found on this guide as attachments or can be picked up at the library as hard copies.

The library's binding form requires the following information:

  • Author(s) name
  • Permanent mailing address, (NOT Alvernia address; must have all addresses if more than one author)
  • Full title
  • Number of copies
  • Cash or check made out to Alvernia University

The bindery form also needs to be filled out, either by staff or the student. This form requires the following information:

  • Students’ names
  • Full title of thesis/dissertation
  • Short title for the spine (40-65 characters including spaces)
  • The color of the binding and the lettering are already on the form

When they are returned from the bindery, one is processed for the library and students are notified of arrival. Personal copies are to be picked up by students and then distributed by them to appropriate chairs or professors.


Bindery charges $10 for pickup and $10 for delivery, unless the order is $300 or above.

Most recent prices as of July 2016 are $45.00 for binding.
