Users can discover your thesis all over the world once it is indexed in The Vault collection of PRISM: University of Calgary's Digital Repository. Users will only be able to access your thesis once your embargo has expired. Before that time, they can request access to your thesis from you by using the request a copy form from your thesis record.

If you receive a request to share your thesis prior to your embargo expiration date, it is up to you whether you want to fulfill this request. It is best practice to respond to your requests as these are usually from fellow scholars interested in your work. If you aren’t ready to share your thesis, feel free to indicate when the thesis will be publicly available and to check back then.
