ProQuest Dissertations and Theses offers an index to search for over 1.4 million doctoral dissertations and master theses from ODU and other universities across the globe. Search by keyword, subject, title, or author. The database goes back to 1861, but full text is only available for most titles from 1990s-present.  If full text is not available, request a copy through interlibrary loan.
