Print Theses & Dissertations
The Washington University Libraries catalog and process all theses and dissertations written by Washington University graduate students for whom these are required as a condition of the degree. This is a part of the long-standing practice–here and at most university libraries–where theses and dissertations of students receiving degrees deposit a copy of their work with the library, where it is made available as part of the permanent collection. There are records for all theses and dissertations in the Library Catalog. Most records (not full-text) are now also available as in the OCLC WorldCat database as well. All doctoral dissertations authored by Washington University doctoral degree candidates are directly submitted to the UMI Dissertation Services, a division of the ProQuest Company. (For more information on submitting your dissertation through ProQuest, please see the Graduate School of Arts & Sciences' web pages on the Submission of the Dissertation.)

Conversion to Electronic Theses & Dissertations (ETDs)
Beginning in 2009 (for degrees awarded in August, 2009) all theses and dissertations completed at Washington University were required to be submitted in electronic form. Print submissions are no longer accepted. Dissertations are submitted directly in electronic form to UMI / Proquest Dissertation Services. Master’s theses are locally submitted in electronic form directly into the Washington University Open Scholarship Repository. The University Libraries continues to prepare thesis and dissertation bibliographic records and to make them available in the online public catalog. (Please contact your academic department document for information on the preparation and formatting requirements of the thesis itself. Master's degree candidates in the School of Engineering can refer to their D.Sc. and Masters Thesis Format Guidelines. See the Thesis Submission Form Instructions section of the Master’s Candidates page for instructions on and a link to the thesis submission form, and the Thesis Submission Form Options section for help in understanding the implications of the choices on the form, and the broader context of those choices.
