Theses and Dissertations

Most PhD dissertations and master's theses completed in the Jackson School and its predecessors are available in print in the Walter Library.  Some are available only in the Library Storage Facility, which contains official archival copies as well as some circulating copies. 

Most UT Austin theses and dissertations completed after 2008 are available electronically in Texas ScholarWorks, our institutional repository, and a growing number of theses prior to that date (including all geology theses before 1932) have been digitized and made available there as well.  It can take about a year after a dissertation is submitted to the Graduate School before it's cataloged and available to the public.  Some are embargoed for an additional two years.

The Library Catalog is the place to search for hardcopy theses and ETDs in the UT Libraries collections.  A bibliography of all geology dissertations and theses titles from 1897 to present, with adviser names where known, is maintained separately and available upon request from the Walter Library.
