Accompanying Materials

Supplementary materials:  Supplementary materials must be relevant to the thesis work and consist of electronic material or multimedia that cannot easily be included in the PDF of your thesis. Information on inclusion of supplementary materials will be coming shortly. In the meantime, if you wish to submit multimedia or other supplementary materials, you must contact gradtheses.ok@ubc.ca to find out the requirements.

*****

Accompanying Materials is the term given to materials which are part of the thesis but which are not included in the text (e.g. CD, DVD, CD-ROM).

Submitting CDs and DVDs

When the thesis consists only of an audio or video recording, such as a musical recital, film or play, you must submit the following to the College of Graduate Studies:

  • one high-quality copy of the CD or DVD
  • paper copy of the title page
  • signed paper copy of the Dissertation or Thesis Approval form with original signatures
  • signed paper copies of all applicable forms
  • paper copy of the abstract
  • one copy of the performance programme (for audio or video performances)

Labelling CDs and DVDs

Each item submitted must be in its own case and must be labelled as follows:

On the case: a 1” X 3” label containing the following information:

  • student's last name, first name
  • degree to be awarded (e.g. MA, PhD)
  • date of graduation ceremony (e.g. February 2017, May 2016, September 2017, November 2017)
  • label each set of materials with the copy number and number of copies e.g. 1 of 2, 2 of 2. Example: if your accompanying materials are contained on two CDs, they must be labelled 1 of 2 and 2 of 2
  • thesis title

On discs in permanent marker:

  • student's last name, first name
  • degree to be awarded (e.g. MA, PhD)
  • date of graduation ceremony (e.g. February 2017, May 2016, September 2017, November 2017)
  • label each set of materials with the copy number and number of copies e.g. 1 of 2, 2 of 2. Example: if your accompanying materials are contained on two CDs, they must be labelled 1 of 2 and 2 of 2
  • thesis title

Please do not stick any labels directly onto the discs. We will not be able to accept them.
