NAU graduate thesis and dissertation
Electronic thesis and dissertation (ETD)
All NAU theses and dissertations are published electronically through ProQuest. Through active partnerships with more than 700 universities, ProQuest disseminates and archives more than 90,000 new graduate works each year. These works are available through library subscription databases and for easy and convenient ordering.
The Northern Arizona University Graduate College has partnered with Cline Library, and all NAU theses and dissertations are also available in our Institutional Repository.
An NAU graduate student’s thesis or dissertation can be prepared using any word processor or document preparation system, as well as any incorporation of relevant multimedia elements. ETDs eliminate the past university-wide requirement to submit multiple copies of bound volumes using cotton bond paper, and they consume virtually no library shelf space.
