Borrowing & Purchasing Print Page


Borrowing a thesis or dissertation from UNC:

If you have a valid One Card or UNC Borrower's Card, you can check out theses and dissertations held by UNC Libraries that are listed as "available" in the catalog. If you are not currently affiliated with UNC, you can request a copy of a dissertation or thesis held at UNC through your library's Interlibrary Loan program.

Borrowing a thesis or dissertation held at a non-UNC library:

UNC-Chapel Hill students, staff, and faculty can request a dissertation or thesis held at another library through UNC's Interlibrary Loan Service. Please note dissertations and theses that are requested from another library are subject to that library's lending policies.



To purchase a copy of a UNC Chapel Hill dissertation:

If it was done after 1959, it can be purchased from ProQuest Dissertation Express. Orders can be placed online or by phone (1-800-521-3042).

In addition, those with access to the Dissertations & Theses database can now purchase copies of our dissertations completed since 1996 through this resource.

If it is a dissertation not available from ProQuest Dissertation Express, or is a master's thesis or dissertation not available for loan, or is an honors thesis, contact the North Carolina Collection.

To purchase a copy of a non-UNC-Chapel Hill dissertation:

UNC-Chapel Hill students, staff, and faculty can make requests for the library to purchase dissertations using the Request a Title for Purchase online form.

Orders can be placed through Proquest Dissertation Express. PDFs and unbound copies can be ordered online. There is a telephone number (1-800-521-3042) as well as a mail-in form for ordering microforms and bound copies.

In addition, dissertations from many other institutions completed from 1996 on can be purchased through the Dissertations & Theses database.

UNC-Chapel Hill faculty, staff, and students can purchase an unbound paper copy of a dissertation through an Interlibrary Loan request for approximately $20.
