Dissertation Databases

To identify dissertations written at the University of Washington as well as other universities use one of the following databases. If a dissertation is not available online then submit an interlibrary loan request to get a copy. You can also buy copies of many dissertations via Proquest Dissertations & Theses Global.

At the UW

Search for hard copies of dissertations & master's theses written at the UW. Prior to 2012, not all master's theses were submitted to the Libraries collection. As of 2012, no hard copy dissertations or theses will be added to the collection in UW Seattle. Many will be available via ResearchWorks Archive or Proquest Dissertations & Theses Global.
