BGSU Libraries Catalog: The Jerome Library owns print and microfilm copies of all of the dissertations produced at BGSU prior to Fall 2005 and a small number of selected titles from other institutions. They can be located in the catalog using standard author, title, and keyword searching.
OhioLINK Catalog: You can request a dissertation available at another institution using the patron request feature. It will be delivered free of charge within 2-4 business days.
Interlibrary Loan: If no OhioLINK institution owns the dissertation, you may make a request using InterLibrary Loan. To make a request, use Interlibrary Loan (ILL). First time users will need to create a username and password. The Interlibrary Loan office will try to locate a copy to borrow. It usually takes at lease 2 weeks for these to arrive.
BGSU theses and dissertations are available either in print or electronically, depending on when they were submitted.
Prior to Fall 2005: Almost all masters theses and doctoral dissertations granted by Bowling Green State University prior to September 2005 should be part of the BGSU Libraries collection.

Fall 2005 and After: All theses and dissertations were submitted electronically, except for theses written in the MFA program in Creative Writing,
