Q. How do I find a dissertation from UC Berkeley?
The ProQuest Dissertations and Theses database indexes graduate dissertations from over a thousand graduate school and universities, and includes full-text access to dissertations published since 1997. The database also includes full-text dissertations from the University of California from:
- September 1962 - December 1970 and
- December 1975 - present
If you can't find a specific UC Berkeley dissertation on ProQuest, go to UC Library Search and use the Resource Type filter to limit your search to "Dissertations."
If you're not on campus, and you are not a UC Berkeley student, faculty or staff member, you may be able to access UC Berkeley dissertations for a fee from ProQuest's Dissertation Express or, for items in our collection, using our photoduplication services.
