Search the UCR catalog by author, title, or keyword, or browse by UCR department. Most UCR dissertations and theses from 2011- are available digitally from ProQuest or eScholarship.
Dissertations and theses submitted prior to 2011 may be available at UCR library or the Southern Regional Library Facility (SRLF). Search for these by author, title, or keyword. Items housed at SRLF can be requested through interlibrary loan. You can also purchase copies of UCR dissertations from UMI Dissertation Express from ProQuest.
