MIT's DSpace contains more than 40,000 theses completed at MIT dating as far back as the mid 1800's. Theses in this collection have been scanned by Document Services or submitted in electronic format by thesis authors. Since 2004 all new Masters and Ph.D. theses will be scanned and will be added to this collection after degrees are awarded.

If you are a recent MIT graduate and would like to add your thesis to the theses in DSpace, see Add Your Thesis to MIT's DSpace for instructions. All theses scanned by the MIT Libraries are scanned in black and white mode. Color content, active links, and searchable text will only be preserved in the online version of your thesis if you have given an electronic copy (PDF) to the MIT Libraries.
