How To Order Dissertations

Whether you’re an author, researcher, or publishing institution, there are multiple ways for you to order a dissertation through ProQuest. You can do the searching, or we’ll do it for you. Order once, or set up an ongoing schedule. You can even work with expert bibliographers and database specialists to create a selection profile and criteria that result in automatic delivery of the materials you need, as soon as they become available—and you retain the right to return anything that falls outside your criteria, for full credit.
