Recommendations for Collecting Senior Thesis PDFs from Students:

You are free to collect PDFs from students in whichever manner you choose; however, here are a few tips that might be helpful:

  • Collect PDFs from students by email. Create a dedicated folder in your Inbox to store them.

  • If you are expecting a large number of emails submissions, you may want to set up a “Rule” in Outlook whereby all emails with a specific set of text in the subject line (e.g. Senior Thesis Submission) will automatically funnel into a dedicated folder in your Inbox as they arrive.  This will reduce clutter in your Inbox, and store the emails in a single location.

  • Ask students to name their PDF files in a standard format: last name_first name; e.g. “smith_jane.pdf”. This naming convention will be helpful for locating names within the folder, and for alphabetizing the list of PDFs in the folder stored on your computer.

  • Some departments, especially those with a large number of concentrators, use Blackboard to collect PDFs. 

Please note: prior to uploading to DataSpace, PDFs will need to be moved out of your email application (or Blackboard) and saved in a folder on your computer (Desktop or in My Documents).  

If you have questions about these or other options for collecting senior thesis PDFs, please contact Lynn Durgin.
