North Reading Room, Doe Library Now that you have defended your dissertation and it has been approved, it’s time to make it available to other scholars! Dissertations are now filed electronically, so the Library can make a digital version available for the whole world to read. When you file your work, you must make a decision about whether to opt for Immediate Release — making your dissertation accessible right away— or whether to Embargo it for up to two years. Be sure to think carefully about this important decision. Also new in the campus libraries: You can print wireless from your laptop or mobile device and pick up your print job at any participating campus library.
