Collection and Access Policies for Student Publications [PDF]

[Select Undergraduate and] Graduate capstones, theses and dissertations written to satisfy degree requirements are the property of the University. The Library and University Archives are obligated and mandated to collect, preserve, and provide access to these works as a record of Chatham’s degree-granting programs and as evidence of the work conducted in fulfillment of Chatham’s educational mission. As cumulative research documenting the growth of a university department, student publications additionally provide evidence of the growth and development of the University as a whole. To that end, the following policies are put in place to ensure the preservation of our students’ works and the Library’s fulfillment of its mission.

Unless otherwise noted, intellectual property rights in student publications are retained by the author of the work.
