Electronic dissertations and theses published by UA authors can be found in the Dissertations and Theses at University of Alabama database.

Dissertations and theses by UA authors may also be located in the Institutional Repository (IR).

To search for electronic dissertations and theses by any author (not just those from UA), you can use the Dissertations and Theses database to search by keyword, advisor, university and more.

You can also use Scout to search for both print and electronic dissertations and theses. Search by title, author, or keyword, then use the options on the left side of the page to limit the results. Under Source Types, click Show More. Then tick the box next to Dissertations/Theses and click Update. You might also try adding the word thesis or dissertation to your search.

If we don't have the item you need, you can place a request to borrow a copy via Interlibrary Loan.

Recently published dissertations may not be available due to publishing embargo.
