Searching for Dissertations and Theses

Dissertations and theses can provide a wealth of information and their bibliographies are also very useful.

Obtaining Dissertations & Theses

UIUC Online Catalog

The UIUC Library should have at least one copy of all theses and dissertations granted at UIUC. The UIUC Library may also have selected theses and dissertations from other institutions. Copies of dissertations deposited at UIUC from 1978 to the present are accessible by author and title through the I-Share Catalog.

Interlibrary Loan

UIUC's Interlibrary Loan Office can help you obtain theses and dissertations not owned by UIUC. They provide two options:

  • Place a standard online ILL request using the "Request a Book" form. If they cannot find a free copy, they will email you and give you the option of placing an order through the Dissertation Express service.
  • Dissertation Express (via the Interlibrary Loan Office) is a fee-based service that obtains dissertations in 4-5 business days. The Library will pay for the item, but you are responsible for a $15 shipping charge. For more information on this service, see the Interlibrary Loan Office's Dissertation Express FAQ entry.
