Contact University Archives to request a thesis. The Thesis Collection is stored off-site; allow at least one working day for retrieval.
If you know the exact title of the thesis, put quotes around the title.
In Library resources, the words "theses" or "thesis" used alone includes both doctoral dissertations and master's theses.
The University of Delaware Library does not often have theses from other institutions, but check DELCAT Discovery to be sure.
Some theses may be borrowed through Interlibrary Loan. Check these resources to obtain the correct information to fill out an ILL request form:
Theses not available through Interlibrary Loan can be purchased from the ProQuest company.
Contact the Subject Librarian for the Department or Discipline. Or contact the librarian listed as “General Collection.”
