New! Dissertations and Theses: Full Text (ProQuest)

Are you looking for a dissertation or a thesis?

The FGCU Library now subscribes to Dissertations and Theses: Full Text!

Many people find dissertations and theses useful for their research.

Graduate students may find these especially useful as they are working on their own thesis or dissertation and want to view other examples.

Full text is available for many of these, including most published after 1997. All subject areas are covered. It also includes FGCU dissertations and theses published in 2013 and later.
