Baylor University Library no longer binds theses but makes theses and
dissertations available electronically.  Below is the url for the
information provided to graduate students/departments as to how they may
choose to have their individual theses/dissertations bound, but I have
also copied the information.

Options for Binding

Beginning in Fall 2005, the Graduate School and Baylor Libraries no
longer require bound copies of the dissertation or thesis. However,
several options for binding are listed below should you or your
department or committee desire bound copies. These are a few of the
available options.

Library Binding ( no online ordering;
$20.00 + tax, shipping extra. Local company, choice on presentation,
inquire regarding handling of complex orders.

Heckman Bindery (Thesis-on-Demand;
online ordering that includes shipping cost; around $50.00 depending on
color, etc. Offers high quality, options for presentation, handles
complex orders, ease of order and delivery.

ProQuest ( online ordering
that includes shipping cost; hardbound $45.00 for 8 1/2 x 11, no color
choices, limited choice on presentation. Offers ease of order and
delivery, handles complex orders.

Please note that the Graduate School and the University Libraries are no
longer involved in the binding process.

Our library does the thesis binding along with the binding journals.
This is posing as a problem for us to provide this service to Graduate
Studies, because of the time and labor I have to provide in taking care
that the thesis is processed correctly.  What are your thoughts on this
and do you have url links to binding policies at your universities?
