Digital Commons Network: Many colleges & universities use the Digital Commons platform to publish work by faculty and students. Select “Theses/Dissertations” as the Publication Type to limit your results to only dissertations and theses.
PQDT Open: The PQDT Open database is a subset of the larger ProQuest Dissertations & Theses database (which our library does not have), which provides free, open access dissertations and theses.
Open Access Theses and Dissertations: OATD.org is another great platform for finding freely-available theses & dissertations
Requesting dissertations & theses: If you find the citation or abstract for a dissertation or thesis that is not available in full-text, you can request it through Interlibrary Loan by submitting the ILL Custom Request Form. Although many dissertations & theses are not available through ILL, we will try to obtain them for you where possible!
