Database of Doctoral Dissertations

“American Doctoral Dissertations 1933-1955” is a database containing nearly 100,000 records of dissertations accepted for publication at U.S. universities during that period. Each dissertation contains a title, subject, university, and other publication data. The database was digitized from the print index Doctoral Dissertations Accepted by American Universities in a collaborative effort between EBSCO Information Services, the H.W. Wilson Foundation, and Boston’s Congregational Library & Archives. The data is not available for republication under an open license, but users are encouraged to download it for their own uses.
