When you know the author or title
Use the author or title search in ALICE. The record for the work will indicate whether it is available in paper or online in the OhioLINK Electronic Theses & Dissertation Center, an online repository for theses and dissertations for OhioLINK institutions, which includes Ohio University documents completed since 2001.
When you know the department
You can browse a list of Ohio University dissertations (for doctoral or PhD programs) or Ohio University theses (for Master’s programs) by department. The departments and programs are listed as they were named at the time the theses or dissertations were written. To rearrange these lists by date, click on Modify/Sort and then check the Sort Results by Year box.
You can also browse by department in the OhioLINK ETD.
When you know the advisor
In the ProQuest Dissertations & Theses database, you can search for documents by advisor and committee member, in addition to title, author or subject. You can access all Ohio University documents through this database, along with citation information and the first 24 pages of works by students at other institutions. You can request access to non-Ohio University dissertations and thesis via InterLibrary Loan.

Honors Tutorial College Theses
The Libraries have been cataloging some theses written by students enrolled in the Honors Tutorial College since the late 1990s. Since about 2004, however, the collection is fairly complete.

The theses themselves are located in Archives and Special Collections, on the 5th floor of Alden Library.
The HTC Thesis Database is not really a database; it’s a PDF file that lists every HTC thesis title and author in chronological order.
Beginning around 2010, the full text of Honors Theses is available from the OhioLINK Electronic Theses and Dissertations Center. Please note the two separate categories there:
