A subset of the Dissertation and Theses Full Text (Proquest) database that allows you to search VCU dissertations/theses. View 24-page previews; download full-text (PDF format) of those published after 1996.
You can purchase copies of dissertations through UMI, the producer of Dissertation Abstracts. Submit your order online or print out a form to mail or fax. Note that the order form allows you to search for dissertations by author or title.
We will attempt to borrow dissertations from other libraries. There is no charge for this service, but it can be difficult to obtain a dissertation. Other libraries may not be able to lend their dissertations and the only loanable copy might be on microform. You may be able to get sections of dissertations, so you can include a note in your request, or we can work with you to find the parts you need.
