5,000 theses and dissertations from 1975-2006 have been added to the UA Campus Repository as part of the Theses and Dissertations Retrospective Digitization Project. When the project is completed, more than 25,000 titles will be freely available - including the very first UA thesis from 1895, and the first UA dissertation, published in 1924 - J.V. Gorm Loftfield’s Quantitative Studies on the Vegetation of the Grazing Ranges of Northern Arizona.
The UA Campus Repository is the go-to place for open access UA Theses and Dissertations online! More than 15,000 titles are now available including:
-Master’s theses, master’s reports and dissertations submitted online from 2005-present
-Dissertations and master’s theses from 1917-2005, digitized from print and microfilm holdings
-Honors College theses from 2008-present
This project is part of the University Libraries efforts to make all UA theses and dissertations available online via open access. This project improves access to unique campus materials which were previously available only in microfiche and print. In addition, the digital versions are full-text searchable!
The UA Campus Repository is also home to digital versions of UA Yearbooks, and digital collections from campus units, such as the Laboratory of Tree-Ring Research and the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences.
