Theses & Dissertations Archives & Special Collections

​The AUB Libraries theses and dissertations collection counts so far around 10, 000 titles. Hard copies of this collection are housed in the Archives and Special Collections Department, Jafet Memorial Library. The collection has been cataloged and digitized. Authorized theses can be downloaded either as open access i.e., for theses that passed 50 years of submission or through AUB authentication. Restrictions on copying apply to non-authorized theses for a period of three years from the date of submission, after which they become accessible. The collection dates range from 1906 to the present; the oldest thesis in our holdings is titled: "Petra Historical and Descriptive" by Scott, Arthur Pearson (1906).
