Electronic Project Filing - Senior Design Capstone

Step 1 Overview: Create Your Cover Sheet

After presenting your scholarly project and receiving the approval of your committee members, the first step of preparing for filing with the Monroe Library is to create a cover sheet. This page will become the first page of your project, so it's important to make sure that the information included is correct and free of errors.

To create your cover sheet, you will need to:

1A. Gather the required information for your cover sheet
1B. Download a cover sheet template (provided below)
1C. Add required information to your cover sheet

Once you have completed these steps, you will have a completed cover sheet that you will use to gather required signatures in Step 2.

  • Copyright information (choose one): All Rights Reserved or Creative Commons license (CC-BY-NC)
  • Availability: Determine whether you'd like for your capstone project to be available worldwide or only to the Loyola University New Orleans community
