Theses and dissertations written at UW can be accessed through one of the databases provided by ProQuest. To access this database from the main UW Libraries webpage, click on the orange "Articles and Databases" icon located under the search box and "Go" button. The next webpage will have databases listed by subject and by title, as well as popular and trial databases. Move your mouse cursor and click on "D" in the "Databases by Title" box. When the webpage of "D" databases loads, scroll down until you see "Dissertations and Theses @ UW." Click on the link and a search page will open up. In the search boxes you can search by author, title, subject, and so forth. If the document is available, you will be able to view and download a pdf of the file.
You can also go directly to that database using this link: http://www-lib.uwyo.edu/utils/permalink.cfm?id=8895
In general, on-line access to theses and dissertations is limited to UW faculty, staff, and students due to copyright restrictions. For non-UW patrons, a copy of the dissertation can be requested by interlibrary loan through a public or other library. Public patrons may also use the public computers in the university libraries to access theses and dissertations.
This YouTube video made by a UW librarian demonstrates how to search the Dissertations & Theses @ UW database for a specific department: https://youtu.be/W8gJMYc5ps0
