What faculty say
"This is an important way of sharing your insights with the broader scholarly community (and it is another way of giving back - and moving away from a model of extractive research). I really hope you will share your honors thesis in this format - in addition to the traditional paper copy."
Bill Moseley - Geography Department
"Just a quick note of appreciation: the Digital Commons is an outstanding aid to my teaching. Not only is this form of publication something to which students can and do aspire, but I also assign past student papers as standard readings on my syllabus, all of which is made easy with the Digital Commons."
Paul Dosh - Political Science Department
