Have an IMP Bound

If you would like to have copies of your thesis bound for yourself and friends:

  1. Come to the reference desk with your printed copies
  2. Print, fill out, and sign the IMP Binding Request Form (PDF)
  3. Include a blank page on the top and bottom of your study
  4. Make sure your left margin is 1½ inches, and that all the pages are in order
  5. The norm is single-sided printing (easier to read and photocopy).


We accept cash (in person) and checks made payable to Bank Street College Library.

  • Each copy costs $20.00
  • If collecting your personal copy is not possible, there is a $7.50 mailing charge for the first copy, and $5.00 for each additional copy.
  • If your thesis is to be mailed outside the US, contact Acquisitions Librarian Nora Gaines. Please include in your email the following details: destination country, and weight of copies to be mailed.

Binding Options

Theses can be bound in a variety of colors, and there are options for:

  • White or gold lettering, at no extra, cost on the spine.
  • The title of your thesis on the front cover for a small fee.

How Long Does It Take?

It usually takes 1-2 months for theses to return from the bindery. Please note, we accept theses for binding all-year round.
