About Embargoes

What is an Embargo?

An embargo will allow you to temporarily delay public online access to your work in the eRepository (dissertation, thesis, or final project) and ProQuest (dissertation or final project).

You can select the same embargo length for both or choose different embargo lengths for each site.

Your advisor should be able to guide you as to whether you should embargo your work and for how long. If you have any further questions, do not hesitate to contact us.
