The library does not require print copies of your dissertation anymore. Why is that so? The library now has ProQuest@WesternU. This product allows you to upload a digital copy of your dissertation and makes it discoverable to the larger ProQuest Electronic Thesis and Dissertation (ProQuest ETD) search database.
If you want to search for dissertations and theses and obtain them freely, you can use ProQuest Open Access Electronic Thesis and Dissertation (PQDT Open). This subset of ProQuest ETD allows you to obtain the dissertations and theses because the authors have selected the Open Access option upon submission.
For information about submitting to ProQuest@WesternU, look at our ProQuest Dissertation and Thesis Submission Instruction webpage or contact firstname.lastname@example.org to make an appointment for help in submitting your dissertation to ProQuest@WesternU.
