The facilitators for this session, Max Read and Jaime Coffey, are Faculty of Graduate Studies staff whose work includes advising students on thesis preparation and formatting.

Max Read is the Communications and Thesis Coordinator, and in 2005 she was a leader on the Library/Graduate Studies team that initiated a pilot project for submission of Electronic Theses and Dissertations (ETDs).  As well as assisting students, she works with UBC Associate Deans, the Library, and UBC Legal Counsel on matters related to ETDs.  Max is also on the Board of Directors of the international Networked Digital Library of Theses and Dissertations (NDLTD).

Jaime Coffey works closely with Max in providing guidance to graduate students. She joined the Faculty of Graduate Studies in January 2008 and became the Thesis Clerk in 2009.  Having earned a Masters degree herself, Jaime can often be found in the new Graduate Student Welcome Centre tutoring students on format, and explaining university requirements for thesis submission.
