All thesis and dissertations since 1997 have been submitted electronically (ETDs). We are also scanning all print theses and dissertations. As long as your document was not "suppressed" at then time of submission (because it included proprietary data or national security concerns), it should be listed in the library catalog. Perform an author search using your last name at the time of submission. The catalog record will have a link to the online version, if there is one.
Access to these online theses and dissertations can vary. Authors can choose to limit access to campus computers for a period after submission. These restrictions are not always removed when they should, but an email to Gail McMillan explaining that you want access to your own ETD should remove that restriction.
Similarly, while we are scanning the print documents, we cannot post in-copyright theses and dissertations online without the author's permission. (This is most theses or dissertations submitted since 1957.) Authors can provide us with that permission by submitting an online form. Once we receive that permission, we'll open access to the document so you can download it.
