Example LaTeX2e Project Dissertation
Project dissertations may be submitted as postscript to the
Service Printroom via a dedicated FTP server:
Once the file has been sent you have to register the print job using
the old paper mechanism (i.e. you have to physically go to Computing
Service Sales!). The printroom will then perform an
excellent job of both printing and binding your work.
Things to note when generating your dissertation:
Ensure that there are the correct number of blank pages inserted
so that each double sided page has a front and a back. So, for
example, the title page must be followed by an absolutely blank page
(not even a page number).
Some people have had problems with using the standard Computer Modern
fonts. Thus, this example document uses postscript fonts (see the
preamble in join.tex).
Submitting postscript introduces more potential problems.
Therefore you must either allow two iterations of the binding process
(once in a digital form, falling back to a second, paper, submission if
necessary) or submit both paper and electronic versions.
I have prepared a quick example:

Also, if you are using dvips on the Computer Lab. teaching
and research machines then use -Pdocutech to ensure correct
