How to Submit Your Thesis to MINDS Through Learn@UW-Superior

If you are completing your thesis this semester, or if you are a faculty advisor for a student who is completing their thesis this semester, you should see a MINDS@UW-Superior link when you log in to Learn@UW-Superior. If you do not see this link, contact Shana Aue as soon as possible.

When you click on the MINDS@UW-Superior link, you will se D2L environment very similar to those you use for classes. You will see instructions on submitting your thesis for publication in MINDS - review them if necessary. You will submit your thesis, Metadata Page, and Approval Page through the Dropbox.

There are two folders in the Dropbox: one for your Thesis and Metadata Page, and one for your Approval Page. The student or their faculty advisor can submit to either of these folders - whatever is easiest.

Upload materials to the Dropbox just as you would for class: by uploading files, or by dragging and dropping. Then hit Add.

Once you have added your files, hit Submit. Repeat this process for both the Thesis and Metadata Page folder and the Approval Page folder. You're done! Shana will contact you when your thesis is successfully published in MINDS.
