Theses and Dissertations

About Theses and Dissertations

Theses and dissertations in an academic context are publications written by graduate and post-graduate students to complete a degree. They tend to be underutilized as information sources.

Student researchers will find them useful for the literature reviews, original research project or study, and the extended analysis of a topic found in most of these publications.

From 2007, WSU Libraries hold electronic copies of Wichita State University theses and dissertations (ETDs) only. Students who want a bound copy of their thesis or dissertation may make arrangements directly with a bindery. The HF Group (Houchen Bindery, located in Utica, Nebraska) has a great deal of experience binding copies of theses and dissertations. The bindery suggests that customers send materials to the binding plant via UPS.
