Check with your GPD.

Can I submit more than my PDF?

What if I want to make a physical thesis book for the Library collection?

First: Supreme thanks. It is not required but know it will be looked at plenty! 

Second: You can get it to the library anytime. It should match the content of the PDF. Please deliver the physical thesis book to the Circulation Desk in Fleet Library, first floor, with a note "for Marc Calhoun."
