Q. Can I obtain dissertations through Interlibrary Loan?
Theses and dissertations not available online may be ordered through Interlibrary Loan and may arrive in print, microfilm, or microfiche. To order a thesis or dissertation, log on to ILLiad and choose “Request a Thesis.”
Before requesting a thesis or dissertation, please check UAB Libraries’ online holdings. For theses and dissertations written at UAB, search in UAB Digital Collections and/or Dissertations at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. For dissertations written elsewhere, search in Dissertations and Theses.
If a requested U.S. dissertation is not available online or through Interlibrary Loan, you may purchase a copy in the format of your choice through Dissertation Express. Copies are usually supplied in 4-5 days. The fee [pricing information] may be paid by credit/debit card.
