SUBMISSION TO JMU LIBRARIES
JMU libraries now require that you submit your senior honors project electronically through their ETD site. To make your library submission easier, you will need the following items in preparation for submission.
Instructions for Naming Your Files:
The primary text document must be converted to PDF and named in the correct file pattern. The Honors Computer Lab is capable of converting your document. Secondary files, (i.e. videos, audio files, photos...) which need to accompany the primary text document can be uploaded in their original format. Acceptable secondary file formats are: JPEG, mp3, WAV, etc.
1. Name your file(s) in the following pattern:
a. primary text document:
(Example: allis2kl_honors_05-08-2009) all lower case
b. all accompanying files:
(Example: allis2kl_honors_05-08-2009_interview) all lower case
2. Explanation of file name:
a. underscores: Be sure to include all underscores _ as shown in the examples
b. level: use "honors" if you an honors student; use "masters" if you are a masters student;
use "doctorate" if you are a doctorate student
c. date: the date must be expressed with hyphens and a 4-number year
(mm-dd-yyyy). The date should reflect the date of your most recent or final revision.
d. version: this is only required if you are uploading more than one file. It is to label or
distinguish the file from the primary text document. (Examples: If you are uploading
an audio file of an interview, type "interview" in the version field. If you have an audio
file of a musical performance, type "performance" in the version field.)
