Finishing your dissertation?
The Graduate School is excited to announce that several students have successfully submitted their Masters Theses and Doctoral Dissertations via ProQuest and we continue to receive electronic submissions daily!
Detailed formatting and submission information for preparing electronic documents is available from the Graduate School website, <http://grad.msu.edu/etd/>http://grad.msu.edu/etd/
During Fall 2010, traditional submission of unbound printed documents will continue to be an option, but only electronic documents will be accepted after December 17th, 2010.
Please note that the deadline date of December 17th, 2010 means that a document must be reviewed prior to this date AND all necessary paperwork submitted to the Graduate School in order to be successfully submitted for final approval. Simply 'submitting' a document on December 17th does not necessarily mean that it will be successfully submitted for the Fall 2010 deadline. All corrections and revisions as well as paperwork must be in our office before 5:00 pm on December 17th to be a Fall 2010 graduate.

New dissertations added
For several years MSU Libraries has been part of a cooperative subscription that gave our patrons access to the electronic full text of dissertations from Big Ten/CIC schools via ProQuest UMI. This subscription has now been expanded to cover all U.S. dissertations available from ProQuest UMI for 1997 to the present. http://er.lib.msu.edu/item.cfm?item=050534

Some big name schools, particularly in the Ivy League, do not use ProQuest UMI as an archive and thus are not included. Even so, this is a substantial expansion of available resources and should be of particular interest to our graduate students.

The announcement came with a warning that ProQuest lists the items as soon as they come in and thus very recent dissertations may appear in the database before they are digitally available.
