To borrow a print copy of a thesis you will need to request it located in our catalog through your local library via the interlibrary loan (ILL) process. This link is to a page on our website that provides the information for ILL: There is a cost associated with international loans. Please see the policies on the ILL webpage.

To borrow through ILL you will need to provide the thesis title and call number. You can browse the UW library catalog to locate this information. If you need assistance locating this information, email or call 307-766-2070.

Most digitized theses are available through academic libraries through a subscription database. If you are associated with another university, check with your library to see if it is available. UW Libraries do not loan out digital theses or dissertations because of copyright restrictions.

Digitized theses and dissertations are available for purchase through ProQuest. You may wish to consider that option to obtain this document. We do not endorse or specifically recommend this option. We are only providing this information. These links are to the ProQuest website:

You can search the ProQuest site by author name or publication title. We can help you locate the UMI publication number from our catalog information. Once this number has been identified, enter it in the field labeled "Publication Number" on the ProQuest order page.
