As of September 2010 all doctoral dissertations and masters theses are submitted to the Proquest Dissertations & Theses database.
Electronic copies of doctoral dissertations began to be available in 1997 while masters theses began to be available in September 2010.These are stored offsite and are for use only in the Blanchard Special Collections Reading Room. Theses and dissertations do not receive standard “subject” headings.Dissertation titles are required to be descriptive, so title word searches are often effective.After a dissertation or thesis is submitted to Graduate Studies, it can take up to several months for it to appear in the database.UC Davis theses and dissertation issued between 1978 and mid-2003 are available for use in the Microcopy Collection, Lower Level, Shields Library.Es bleibt Ihnen überlassen, welche der enthaltenen Features sie nutzen.Die in der Dokumentvorlage enthaltene Literaturverwaltung ist veraltet und sollte nicht verwendet werden.If you are not able to consolidate the files before creating the PDF file, it is possible to combine the multiple PDF files using the commands in Adobe Acrobat.The administrator of the Office of the Senior Vice Provost for Academic Administration and Dean of Graduate Studies will not be able to make corrections or comments on multiple PDF files, so it is essential to send only one completed file.There may be a microform or print copy available for use, or you may request retrieval of the archival copy via Special Collections.The Dissertations & Theses database provides access to the complete full-text of all University of California dissertations in addition to UC Davis doctoral dissertations from the year 1997 forward.
