Q. How can I find dissertations and theses in the library?
Some print copies of UAB dissertations and theses can be found in print at the Sterne and Lister Hill Libraries. You can check for availability of these by searching in UAB Libraries' OneSearch by title or author.
In addition to the catalog, UAB electronic theses and dissertations can be found in the UAB Digital Collections. Theses and dissertations are usually available 3 to 5 months after the student has graduated unless the student has chosen an embargo period of either 6 months, 1 year or 2 years.
UAB theses and dissertations can also be found online in Proquest Dissertations & Theses at the University of Alabama at Birmingham.
To search for dissertations and theses from other institutions, use the ProQuest Dissertations & Theses database.
