Students writing a thesis/dissertation should be extremely conscientious in their use of sources, since the work will be publicly accessible upon completion. The burden for adhering to copyright law and fair use falls almost entirely on the student. If you use non-text media, such as photos, images, graphs, or diagrams, you must obtain permission unless the source specifically gives you permission.
Each graduate program has unique requirements with regard to format and citation style. Consult the graduate handbook for your program. Additionally, you are required to submit an electronic copy of your final thesis/dissertation to the Library.
