Q. How can I get a copy of a dissertation or thesis?

  Sep 06, 2019

The BU Libraries has a subscription to ProQuest dissertations and theses.

Dissertations written in the United States from 1997 to the present are usually fully available in this database. For older dissertations, abstracts are available. Physical copies are usually kept only at the school where it was written.

To determine the current location of an older BU dissertation, please check BU Libraries Search. Dissertations from other institutions may be requested through Interlibrary Loan.
