Dissertations from 1997 to the present can be accessed via the library's subscription to ProQuest Dissertations and Theses database. You can access this database off-campus via EZProxy.

If the item is from 1997 to the present, you should see an icon to download the dissertation (for free).

If the item is earlier and not available via ProQuest, please use the citation information to place an Interlibrary Loan (ILL) request.

If you are looking for a Pitt dissertation, search PittCat+ for title or author and use Get It to request the item from storage.

Pitt dissertations may also be available via the University's Electronic Theses & Dissertations (ETDs) archive. (The ETDs archive may also be accessed from the library homepage by selecting D-Scribe Digital Collections from the Quick Links box and scrolling down to Electronic Theses & Dissertations.) ETDs are theses or dissertations prepared as text-based PDF files. ETDs can contain non-text elements such as multimedia, sound, and hypertext links.
