Before depositing you are asked to convert your thesis into Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF).
We prefer that Adobe Acrobat software be used to create PDF files for the Digital Theses collection, as this enables a quality document to be produced using the settings and enhancements described in our guide Producing High Quality PDF files for the Research Archive including Digital Theses.
While other software is available for creating PDFs, many features such as creating bookmarks and adding metadata may not be available.
Adobe Acrobat software to create PDFs is available on some PCs in all University divisions, and two PCs in the ITS Resources Room (adjacent to ITS Help Desk) have Acrobat software installed. If you want or need to do the conversion on your own PC, the free software Pdf995 can be downloaded and installed.
If you do not have easy access to PDF creation software, or if you find it too difficult, the Library will try to convert your thesis for you - please contact an LTL Digital Access Coordinator by email or phone 321 8542.
You may also deposit associated files such as data sets or spreadsheets along with your thesis - we can accept most standard file formats.
