This collection contains over 1,800 theses and dissertations completed by students at The University of Toledo (and former Medical College of Ohio) from 1999 to the present as part of their master's and doctoral degree requirements. Coverage is selective from 1999 to 2009 when electronic submission was optional. A limited number of undergraduate honors theses are also included.

Click here for all theses and dissertations at the University of Toledo Libraries, including those in print.

The Canaday Center holds master's theses from 1918 to 1965 and more recent theses and dissertations from 2000 through 2009. Patrons visiting the Center can access them in the Center's Reading Room, but cannot check them out.
