Theses & Dissertations


The Theses Collection is located on the 4th floor at the end of the journals. They are shelved alphabetically by the author's last name. The collection contains copies of selected Life Sciences, College of Agriculture, and Department of Biological Sciences theses from Purdue. All other Purdue theses are located in the Hicks Repository in the Hicks Undergraduate Library. You will need to check the libraries catalog for the location of theses. They can be checked out from the Life Sciences Library for same length of time as monographic books.

The Life Sciences Library has a very limited number of theses from other universities. We do not regularly purchase non-Purdue theses. If you need a thesis from another university you will need to contact InterLibrary Loan. To search for a thesis or dissertation from other universities use Dissertation Abstracts International.
