Locating UConn Theses and Dissertations

Online Availability of UConn Theses and Dissertations:

ProQuest Dissertations & Theses Full Text provides the full text for most UConn dissertations from 1996 to present, and includes bibliographic entries for more than 9000 dissertations (but no masters theses) as far back as 1965. Recent dissertations are available in ProQuest approximately three months after they are submitted to the Graduate School.

Masters theses submitted after October 2010 are available online through DigitalCommons@UConn approximately two weeks after they have been submitted to the Graduate School.

Theses and Dissertations in Print:

UConn dissertations awarded between 1992 and 2009, and masters theses awarded between 1992 and October 2010, are bound in red covers and are arranged by call number on Level A in Homer Babbidge Library. This arrangement clusters dissertations by academic department. See tips below for searching Homer for dissertations & theses, or see the Department Codes listing posted on the ends of the shelves on Level A to browse by department.

UConn Theses & Dissertations awarded prior to 1992 are bound in black covers and are shelved alphabetically by the author's last name on Level A.

Non-circulating print copies of theses and dissertations are available for viewing in the Dodd Research Center Archives approximately one month after they have been submitted to the Library.

The University of Connecticut does not have copies of theses/dissertations for sale. UConn Ph.D. dissertations may be purchased from ProQuest.

Locating Theses and Dissertations in HOMER:

All UConn dissertations and theses held by the Libraries can be found in HOMER through a title, author, or keyword search. To limit a search to dissertations/theses awarded at UConn, use the boolean keyword search terms: connecticut AND thesis followed by a department name or other keyword. Examples:

connecticut and thesis and "educational psychology"
connecticut and thesis and "federal reserve"

Personal Thesis Binding:

Masters and Doctoral students who wish to have personal copies of their theses/dissertations bound can do so through the Libraries' Preservation department.

Obtaining Dissertations/Theses from Other Institutions:

Document Delivery / Interlibrary Loan can request a dissertation or thesis awarded from another college or university.
