The CSUMB Capstone & Thesis Archive, hosted by the Library, provides a means of archiving and providing access to the significant culminating work of CSUMB seniors and graduate students. As such, and in keeping with CSUMB's vision to "invest in preparation for the future through integrated use of technology," the goal of the archive is to be predominantly electronic.
The Archive began accepting materials in 1999 and encourages all students to submit their Capstones or theses. Submission of an electronic representation of their project to the Library Archive is voluntary. These are records of achievement for our students, not only as a representation of their own experience here at CSUMB, but also to help provide the university with a permanent and public record of culminating student experiences as they reflect our vision and learning outcomes.
If you are a student and want to submit your Capstone or thesis, please take a look at Add your Capstone or Add your Thesis for more information. The guidelines and policies set out in these sections are important to follow because they facilitate quicker, better and more permanent access to Capstones and theses in media that are supported by the university.
The Library will provide server space and online access to the electronic version of Capstones and theses submitted to the Archive. Access is provided online for either local campus or world-wide access via the Library's catalog, Voyager and the CSUMB Capstone & Thesis Archive website.The Library will also provide preservation binding of print theses.The archival copy of the print thesis may be used only within the Library.
Click on Browse Archive to browse through the Capstones and theses titles in the catalog. Our current collection is small, but steadily growing. Some of the items are restricted to viewing by the University Community only. Others are available to the general public for viewing via the Internet.
The CSUMB Capstone & Thesis Archive is a combined online and print collection established for the purpose of retaining student theses for use by other scholars, both at CSUMB and elsewhere. Furthermore, the Archive serves to enhance the institutional memory of academic work accomplished at CSUMB.
