ProQuest Dissertation Database: What Are Its Advantages?

Sep 25, 2015: Dissertation data are in! We are in the process of merging mentorship data from the ProQuest dissertation database into the Academic Tree. We are working to ensure that we do not introduce too many accidental duplicates in this process, but some errors are likely. Please let us know if you notice any problems.

ProQuest Dissertations Database at USF

The University of Chicago relies on the ProQuest dissertation database for dissertations completed after June 2009. The Library holds a paper copy of most University of Chicago doctoral dissertations deposited before Summer 2009, as well as many early masters' theses, and those with current University of Chicago Library borrowing privileges may borrow them. Records for these items appear in the Library Catalog.

ProQuest (formerly University Microfilms International, Inc.) microfilms all doctoral dissertations, which can then be distributed in whole or in part for publication. After your CD and additional items are sent for microfilming, your work will become available through the ProQuest dissertation database. Publication is usually completed within 8 to 10 weeks of receipt of the manuscript. Your dissertation is published exactly as it is submitted to ProQuest. The abstract (350 words or less) will appear in ProQuest's monthly publication, Dissertation Abstracts International (DAI).
