Digital Dissertation Database

Connect to ProQuest Digital Dissertations

ProQuest Dissertations & Theses (formerly known as Digital Dissertations) allows users to search for dissertations and theses from over 1,000 North American and European universities.

Titles from the Big Ten Academic Alliance institutions published 1997 to present are available without charge to current U of M students, staff, and faculty. You can check the "Limit to: Full text" box inside Proquest Digital Dissertations. Alternatively, you can choose to search "Dissertations & Theses @ CIC Institutions" in the "Databases" menu. Please note that very recent U of M dissertations may not appear in ProQuest until several weeks after the MNCAT record for the thesis appears. For dissertations from other institutions, the first twenty-four pages can be displayed free of charge.

How can I get a dissertation we don't have in full text?

First, quickly check tools like Google Scholar or Google (e.g. copy and paste the title in quotes). More recent dissertations may be available through institutional open repositories. 

You can request a loan of a dissertation by using the University Libraries Interlibrary Loan Web form or WorldCat.

Using Proquest Digital Dissertations

  1. Find the item in Proquest Digital Dissertations
  2. From the Interlibrary Loan page, click on Thesis.
  3. Fill out the form. Include the Digital Dissertations publication number (AAT...)
  4. Click Submit Request. Note: In most cases, only the granting institution holds a copy of the dissertation. If the item is on the shelf, print dissertations held at a Big Ten Library will arrive within about a week. If the item is held elsewhere, it may take two weeks. You will be notified if the material does not circulate or if it is already checked out. 

Using WorldCat

  1. Search by author, title, or keyword
  2. Click on "Request via Interlibrary Loan/ILLiad"
  3. Log in and submit Request. 

Purchasing options:

  • via Proquest Digital Dissertations: after you locate the citation, use the OrderNow function. Prices vary depending upon format.
  • via Dissertation Express (for individual researchers): http://disexpress.umi.com/
  • directly from UMI Dissertation Hotline, call 800-521-3042

Advanced research and scholarship. Theses and dissertations, free to find, free to use.
