Cornell Theses and Dissertations

Collection home page

The theses and dissertations of graduate students at Cornell University have been deposited in Cornell's institutional repository (eCommons) since about 2004. This collection also includes a few earlier Cornell theses.

Students retain ownership of the copyright of their work. Students also have the option of imposing a temporary embargo on access to the full text of their theses. This embargo may last from one to five years. If access to a thesis is restricted, the metadata record for the thesis is still visible, but it will contain a field labeled "No Access Until," which indicates the date when the full text of the thesis will be accessible.

More information about Cornell theses and dissertations is available here:

In general, older theses and dissertations from Cornell University are not currently available as digital files in eCommons. The Library is willing to digitize and make available older Cornell theses on a cost recovery basis. If you are interested in this service, please contact
