Can I obtain theses and dissertations through Interlibrary Loan (ILL)?
Yes. Generally, ILL can obtain loans from the institution that granted the degree. Frequently, these are loaned to us in microform format.
If our borrowing request is denied, unbound, shrink-wrapped copies of dissertations published in English can almost always be purchased online from Proquest for $41. Some dissertations also may be purchased in electronic format (PDF) for $30. Selected Kent State University dissertations may be downloaded electronically free of charge. Please see ProQuest Dissertations & Theses for futher information.
Students at selected OhioLINK institutions have made their disserations available online free of charge; see the OhioLINK Electronic Theses and Dissertations Center for theses and dissertations written by Ohio students.
