Ordering a copy of a Princeton University PhD Dissertation
We are happy to offer a PDF copy of dissertations that are not under copyright protection or an embargo.
Search the Princeton University Catalog.
Use the information from the Catalog to search ProQuest for the dissertation prior to contacting Mudd Library. The dissertation may be already digitized and, if your library has a subscription, may be available for download. Researchers without a library subscription can order a dissertation through ProQuest.
Researchers within the United States and Canada who have access to a local Interlibrary Loan service (ILL) or Borrow Direct can request a dissertation if a circulating copy of the dissertation is available.
If ProQuest does not have a copy of the requested dissertation, Mudd will provide a one time library copy for patrons at no cost. Please email our reference staff with a link to the catalog record.
Digitization of dissertations is dependent on the copyright and embargo status. If there is a copyright concern, only 20% of the content can be provided. If there is an embargo concern, we will be unable to complete the digitization request, but researchers are welcome to visit Mudd Library in person to view the material.
