UNT's Spring 2023 Theses and Dissertations Now Available

We recently made our May 2023 graduates’ electronic theses and dissertations (ETDs) available in the UNT Digital Library. The 110 doctoral dissertations and 53 master’s theses join a robust collection of more than 21,000 UNT graduate works dating back to 1936. As the fastest-growing university in Texas, Spring 2023 is another one for the record books, as there was a significant increase in posted degrees over last spring.

In 1999, UNT was among the first three American universities requiring students to submit theses and dissertations in electronic format. The UNT Digital Library followed up by retrospectively digitizing all UNT theses and dissertations produced prior to 1999 and added them to the collection. The UNT libraries played leadership role in the implementation of the Vireo ETD submission and management system allows us to add current ETDs promptly each semester after they are approved by the Toulouse Graduate School.

Full-text searchable within our digital library, the ETDs are also easy to discover via Google and other search engines— providing immediate global visibility. We also provide access to other forms of scholarly and artistic content created by UNT students including data sets, recital recordings, artwork, problems-in-lieu-of-theses, and honors papers.

By delivering integrated, enhanced digital access to these materials, the UNT Digital Library attracts users from more than 200 countries, increasing the impact of UNT students’ scholarship and creativity around the world.
