If you are looking for a thesis or dissertation, we offer several different resources to help you locate the item you need.

ProQuest Digital Dissertations

You can use ProQuest Dissertations and Theses to search for the full-text of dissertations published at universities and institutions across the globe, including those written by former students at IUP. If you wish to only search dissertations from IUP students, visit the ProQuest IUP Dissertation Collection.

Print Collection

In addition to the digital collections mentioned above, we also house a print collection of dissertations and theses written by IUP students. The dissertation collection is located on the ground floor of Stapleton Library.

  2. Enter your search terms.
  3. Select Library Catalog from the "Search In" dropdown list.
  4. Click Search.
  5. In the right-hand column of the search results window, click Available in the Library under Resource Type filter, and then Dissertations under Location. This will limit results to physical copies of dissertations held in the IUP Libraries collections.
