William & Mary theses, dissertations and undergraduate honors theses submission information, including guidelines and embargo options.

General Information

Finding Electronic Theses & Dissertations (ETDs)

William & Mary theses and dissertations are available online in W&M ScholarWorks, our Institutional Repository (IR), as well as the ProQuest Dissertations and Theses Global Database. Additionally, they can be found through the library catalog, Google, Google Scholar, and other search engines. If a thesis or dissertation has an embargo, only the title, author and abstract will be searchable.

ETDs are also available through InterLibrary Loan (ILL).

Submitting Your Thesis or Dissertation

Each W&M school has directions for submitting your thesis or dissertation electronically to W&M ScholarWorks and to ProQuest. Make sure to review the information about copyright and embargoes before you submit your work. You will need to make some decisions when you submit your thesis or dissertation about the type of copyright and the availability of your work online.
