Library FAQ

Do you have dissertations/theses of Jefferson graduates? How do I find them?

Ph.D. theses of Jefferson graduates are housed on the 4th Floor of Scott Library and in the University Archives, and have call numbers beginning with W 4. Master's level theses are not required to be submitted to the library and are therefore best found by contacting the Graduate School. To find Ph.D. theses, search the Scott Memorial Library’s online catalog by the author name. Alternatively, browse the entire list of theses by searching the library catalog with the phrase, jefferson thesis, and then select the right menu “Refine My Results” option for “Available in the Library.” Abstracts of select theses may be found in the Jefferson Digital Commons.

Another possible resource is the Proquest Dissertation Database. This database has dissertations from various universities, and it is not a requirement to submit a dissertation to ProQuest. Jefferson does not subscribe to this service, so you will have to register and purchase the dissertation as an individual.
