Electronic theses and dissertations (ETDs) make VCU student research and creativity available online as full-text documents and multimedia presentations for use by the university community and others involved in research.

See the VCU Libraries Dissertations Research Guide for information on submitting your ETD, accessing older dissertations from VCU, and finding dissertations from other universities.

The majority of VCU theses and dissertations may be found in Special Collections and Archives at James Branch Cabell Library or Tompkins-McCaw Library. Use VCU Libraries Search to locate individual theses and dissertations.
