Dissertations in education

Beginning in 2009 Stanford dissertations were filed electronically and are available full text through SearchWorks. These do not necessarily appear in any other database. A single paper copy is kept in the Stanford University Archives and may be paged for use in Special Collections.

Most Stanford dissertations from 1989 to 2009 are available online in full text from Dissertations & Theses at Stanford University. These are free to Stanford faculty, students, and staff and can be purchased by others.

Circulating copies of Graduate School of Education (GSE) dissertations through 2009 are available by request from SAL3. To locate and request these dissertations, use the online catalog, SearchWorks.

GSE masters' theses are shelved in the Stanford Auxiliary Library 3. They circulate and can also be found in SearchWorks.  Some have also been deposited in the Stanford Digital Repository and are available electronically.

We now have access to dissertations from other universities through Proquest dissertations & theses global.
