You can get bound copies of your Electronic Thesis or Dissertation (ETD) at Sterne Library. After final approval of your thesis or dissertation by the Graduate School, take the number of copies that you want bound to the Administrative Office at Sterne Library between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

The cost of binding varies slightly depending on the current library contract, but it is usually $30- $35 per copy. You will get a price when you submit your copies, and you may pay by check (payable to UAB - Sterne Library). Your bound copies will be returned to Sterne Library in approximately 4-5 weeks. We will notify you when they are ready to be picked up.

If you have any questions, please contact UAB Libraries Administration at 205.934.6360.
