Graduate Studies

A guide to information, resources and services in support of graduate scholarship.


ETD means electronic theses and dissertations.  These resources are published in an electronic format.  Most ETDs are available in full-text pdf format but, occasionally, there are embargos or other circumstances that prevent access.

Open Access means available in full-text (usually pdf) to anyone with an internet connection.

Can't get online full-text access to a dissertation or thesis?  You may be able to borrow the print version through ILLiad, interlibrary loan.  Please see a librarian for assistance.

Locating Theses and Dissertations

No single source has a record of all electronic dissertations and theses, so be sure to search many of these sites to get a broad look at the literature.
