Q: Where can I find copies of Yale dissertations?
Answered by: Laura Sider

If you are a current Yale student, faculty or staff member, you have ready access to Yale dissertations and theses.

Some Yale dissertations are available as hard copies. Search "Orbis," our online library catalog for the dissertation of interest. Many of these dissertations are located at our off-site shelving facility, so you will have to place a request for the item. It generally takes 24-48 hours for the item to arrive. You will receive an email notification when the item is available for pickup.

If you are interested in an electronic copy, you may search for Yale dissertations in Proquest's "Dissertations & Theses" database. To access this database, go to our library homepage and select "Find Databases By Title" located under "Research." Type in "Dissertations and Theses" in the search box; then select the link that will redirect you to this database.

If you do not find the Yale dissertation you need, please contact our Manuscripts and Archives Department at or call 203-432-1744 during business hours.
