HOW TO BORROW/OBTAIN A COPY:
(Received 26 Nov. 2001)
Sorry for the delay - I had said by early afternoon (and it's now a computer
red-eyed 6:00 p.m.).
Firstly, your thesis is in our collection under ISBN 0-315-34900-X.
To Borrow: It's available from the National Library via Interlibrary Loan.
There's no charge for this loan and the format is microfiche only.
For anyone contacting you to borrow your thesis, give the person your thesis
particulars (including the above ISBN) and have him get in touch with his
local library to make the loan arrangements (Interlibrary Loan is indeed
just that: a loan between two libraries. Individual clients can't request
loans). With this info., our Interlibrary Loan office will retrieve the
microfiche copy of your thesis and send it to the originating library (as a
reference, you may want to look at our Web site http://www.nlc-bnc.ca and
refer to Interlibrary Loans).
To Buy: It's available on microfiche only from UMI, our filming and sales
contractor. Again the format is only microfiche. There are three (3) price
ranges for your thesis. An academic client would be charged $36.00U.S.; a
non-academic client would be charged $48.00U.S. and an international
client would be charged $50.00 U.S.
Similar to borrowing, contact UMI quoting the ISBN and your thesis
particulars. As mentioned, the notation on UMI's database is incorrect.
Please direct those interested in buying your thesis to: Patty Smail, the
supervisor of The Customer Support Service. You can reach Patty at
core_service at umi.com or toll-free (Canada and the U.S.) at 1-800-521-3042.
(Patti knows the particular problems with the erroneous notation). For
further information about UMI, try: http://www.umi.com
Royalties are paid to qualifying authors, i.e. theses of authors which have
sold more than seven (7) copies in a given calendar year. A 10% royalty of
theses sales is awarded to an author.
In a nutshell, UMI is part of the Canadian theses picture as many Canadian
universities and the National Library of Canada were interested in the
services they offer, primarily the high profile of their international
databases and the diversity of their coverage (an array of Canadian,
American and European theses and dissertations make up UMI's current
collection). It was (and is) in the best interests of the Canadian academic
community and our Library to bring UMI on board. Thus, an agreement was
reached in 1997 to include UMI in the Canadian theses profile.
If I may help further, please let me know.
