in Frederick S. Pardee Management Library, Mugar Memorial Library, Pickering Educational Resources Library

pdatThe BU Libraries maintains a subscription to the premier dissertations and theses database:

ProQuest dissertations and theses.

Dissertations written in the United States from 1997 to the present are usually available in full text, PDF version in this database. For older dissertations, abstracts are available in this database, and physical copies are usually kept only at the school at which 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.

Please feel free to Ask a Librarian if you have further questions.
