Electronic Theses and Dissertations (ETDs) are theses or dissertations prepared as text-based PDF files. ETDs can contain non-text elements such as multimedia, sound, video, and hypertext links. Since April 2007, UMBC students have been able to submit an electronic version of their theses or dissertations. New submissions will be added as they are received from the Graduate School. All ETDs can be accessed from UMBC campus IP addresses only.
Please note that this refers only to theses and dissertations authored at UMBC. If you are seeking theses or dissertations from other academic institutions, please see the Library's Dissertations subscriptions. For more information on UMBC ETDs, please see the Graduate School web page at http://www.umbc.edu/gradschool/etd/index.html
