Hello Max,

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.
