Please see the ProQuest index "Dissertations and Theses" in the "indexes" box to the right. This index covers U.S dissertation literature from 1861 to the present. All Rutgers dissertations from 1997 to the present are available free in full text from this index.
Rutgers disserations can also be found by searching RUCore from the libraries' homepage. Many RU dissertations are available as part of our Electronic Dissertations and Theses (ETDs) collection (found in RUCore).
Historically, the libraries collected print copies of dissertations, and they are held in the library that covers the subject area. Check the library catalog under author or title when searching for older dissertations. These materials do circulate and may be borrowed.
Rutgers dissertations completed by GSAPP and Psychology students are now being submitted electronically as part of the Rutgers Electronic Theses and Dissertations Program (RU ETD). Rutgers also participates with Proquest (formerly UMI) and dissertations are indexed and made available through the international index entitled "Dissertations and Theses" (found on our list of databases). We also have a subscription to a subset of the global Dissertaions and Theses database for just Rutgers dissertations (the index, Dissertations and Theses @Rutgers University).
Psychology dissertations in paper are included in the collections of the Library of Science and Medicine(and other locations) and are searchable in the library catalog (QuickSearch) by author or title. Please see the dissertations guide linked below for comprehensive information and links to indexes and RUCore. Also below, see specific information for GSAPP students about dissertations and theses (on the GSAPP website).
