Rutgers Dissertations & Theses

Beginning with October 2007 degree date submissions, dissertations and theses that represent a terminal degree from the Graduate School - New Brunswick are no longer sent to the libraries in paper format, but are instead added to RUcore as part of the Rutgers Electronic Theses and Dissertations (RUetd) project. Other graduate schools, including the Graduate School — Newark, are archiving their theses there as well.
