Welcome to RED. RED is an open-access repository maintained by the Minnesota State University Moorhead Library to showcase, preserve, and provide access to the scholarly and creative work produced by the MSUM Community.

A copy of each Dissertation and Thesis written by a graduate student at MSUM as partial fulfillment of the requirements for the graduate degree is deposited in RED. Students registered for Dissertation (799) or Thesis (699) will upload their final approved papers.

For those graduate students that elect to do the Project/Action Research and have registered for 696 or 796, uploading the project is optional. The two options:

  1. Completion of the submission form only; no upload.
  2. Completion of the submission form and upload of project only when approved by project advisor.

Please discuss your options with your advisor.

Student submission guidelines are available on the left menu of this page.
