The Electronic Theses and Dissertation (ETD) Collection is a compilation of theses and dissertations produced in digital format. Historically the Library has been responsible for housing print copies of theses and dissertations produced by the Health Science Center’s Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences.
Recent collaborative efforts with the Graduate Dean’s Office have transitioned this practice from print to electronic only. The Library is no longer accepting print copies; however electronic submissions are welcomed and will be made available through the Library’s Digital Archive/ETD Collection. All print copies prior to 2009 will still be housed in the Library’s print collection of theses and dissertations.
***Access to electronic theses and dissertations is generally unrestricted, but some titles may be limited to Health Science Center faculty, staff and students. As a general rule, the Library only collects dissertations published at UT Health Science Center San Antonio, but students, faculty and staff can access electronic theses and dissertations from other institutions in the Digital Dissertations and Theses online database.
