Stony Brook University Libraries maintains theses and dissertations of Stony Brook University (SBU) graduates in print and in electronic format. In 2007, The Graduate School at SBU instituted the electronic submission process. The databases listed on this guide can be used to locate dissertations and theses of SBU graduates and others.
If you are unable to locate a theses or dissertation, please let us know. It is possible that that the file is "in-process" or that the author has selected to embargo and restrict access.
Please note: the University Libraries do not sell or reproduce dissertations and theses.
It is recommended that you first check for access through one of the University Libraries' licensed databases (see center, top box), through an open access database, or by searching the Libraries' catalog.
If you not affiliated with SBU, you may be able to borrow a copy through your university's interlibrary loan department or purchase a copy from ProQuest's UMI Dissertation Express service.
