ASU Dissertations and Theses

The ASU Library has a copy for most of the dissertations and theses written by ASU graduate and honors students. This guide explains how to determine what is available and how to get a copy.


This section is written for ASU library staff although ASU faculty, staff, students and users outside of ASU are welcome to view these pages, too. 

For each document type (doctoral dissertation, masters thesis, and honors thesis), university and library policies and procedures over the years are outlined.  Each document type is divided by time frames with information about the physical format of the material, where the material is located and which resource tools to use to find the material.
