Lsu Thesis Dissertation Database

Electronic Theses and Dissertations available through Digital Commons

| LSU Libraries

Posted in Announcements, Digital Collections Tagged with: Open Access

LSU Libraries and LSU Graduate School have successfully migrated the Graduate School’s Electronic Theses and Dissertations (ETD) database to the new LSU Digital Commons platform. As of January 2017, 4084 doctoral dissertations and 4281 master’s theses are online, totaling 8365 publications. The dates of the publications range from 2001 to 2016. The database is searchable and can be browsed by a variety of criteria, such as author, department, date and others. The full text, abstracts and recommended citations are freely available.

Future development of LSU Digital Commons will include migrating older, historical dissertations (pre-2001) that have been digitally scanned from microfilm.
