NTIS indexes selected theses and dissertations published as government sponsored technical reports. Many NTIS records link to full text PDFs (included in the Library's NTIS subscription; "Full text" icon then NTRL PDF upper left).
This database provides fast and convenient access to the dissertations and theses available in OCLC member libraries. Recent years of Georgia Tech theses and dissertations may be missing from the WorldCat databases. Selected theses and dissertations may be available electronically, at no charge, directly from the publishing institution. Selected WorldCat records may have URLs for full text repository records. The larger WorldCat (OCLC) database ("Advanced Search") has a "Subtype limits" - - "Content" (drop-down menu), then "Thesis/dissertation;" can "Limit to:" "Language" "English."
Electronic full-text of Georgia Tech-authored dissertations is available from 1997 to 2012, as well as for some 1950-1997 dissertations. GT doctoral students may elect to submit their dissertations to ProQuest Dissertation Abstracts for processing and distribution. Authors choosing this option may access the ProQuest Dissertation Publishing – Authors site for more information or to obtain the appropriate agreement form.
