Undergraduate students in the honors program must produce a thesis before graduation. This is just one of several requirements the students must meet; therefore, the existence of a thesis does not automatically mean a student did graduate with honors. The Honors Theses collection starts with 1962 although Barrett, the Honors College, did not form until 1988. The Libraries' collection of honors theses ends with 2005; Barrett continues to maintain their own collection of the theses. Details are below.
ASU employees (faculty and staff) and currently enrolled students may access the full text by clicking on the "Sign In" link in the upper right corner of the repository screen; input your asurite id/password and once authorized, the pdf link(s) in the right-hand column for each thesis will now be active.
For non-ASU individuals or ASU alumni, please email the College at firstname.lastname@example.org or use their Contact Barrett form to check on the availability of a specific thesis.
These theses are not available for Interlibrary Loan.
Honors Theses: 2006 to mid-2012
Barrett, the Honors College, maintains a print collection of ASU Honors Theses; their collection starts with 1970 and goes to the present. Barrett's collection is the only place where the Spring 2006 through the Spring 2012 theses are available. Please email the College at email@example.com or use their Contact Barrett form to check on the availability of a specific thesis. These theses are not available for Interlibrary Loan.
To identify specific theses from this time period, Barrett maintains an Excel file of their theses; the file contains the year, title, author, thesis advisor and department/discipline.
Honors Theses: 1962-2005
The ASU Library maintains a print collection of the Honors Theses from 1962 to 2005; the collection is not complete and none of the theses are available in electronic format. Use the ASU Library's Catalog to identify the availability of a specific thesis.
With very few exceptions, the collection contains only one, archival copy of each thesis. The collection is housed in storage (High Density Collection); users must contact the Luhrs Reading Room (480-965-4932 or firstname.lastname@example.org) in advance to set up a time to view a thesis; archival material may not be checked out or loaned to other libraries.
For the few titles that have a second copy, this copy may be checked out and may be loaned to other libraries. Second copies from 1962 to 1998 are kept in the High Density Collection; from 1999 to 2005, the second copies are kept in Hayden stacks, call number LD179.145 [year] [cuttered by author]
