If you are a recent MIT graduate and would like to add your thesis to the theses in DSpace, see Add Your Thesis to MIT’s DSpace for instructions.
MIT’s DSpace contains more than 53,000 theses completed at MIT dating as far back as the mid 1800’s. Theses in this collection have been scanned by the MIT Libraries or submitted in electronic format by thesis authors. Since 2004 all new Masters and Ph.D. theses are scanned and added to this collection after degrees are awarded.
The Office of the Registrar conducts open labs each quarter in collaboration with Stanford Libraries DLSS service management staff, explaining the electronic process to students as a support option in addition to the documentation available online. The streamlined submission process saves time for the Registrar and students alike, and reduces environmental impact by eliminating the need to print multiple paper copies for binding, or even more copies when last-minute corrections are required.
Stanford University established an online thesis and dissertation submission service in Fall 2009. The service is a partnership of the University Registrar and Stanford Libraries.
For help identifying and locating dissertations and theses completed at universities other than Rutgers, see the Dissertations and Theses guide.
