The CaltechTHESIS digital repository includes PDF copies of most Caltech doctoral dissertations and some masters and senior theses. Many of these works are available open access to any user, meaning you are able to click through immediately to the PDF for your individual use. Some theses and dissertations may have more limited access, with restrictions to Caltech campus users only, or even to all users (full embargo). The access policy for each work is determined by the author in consultation with their advisor and in adherence to the Caltech thesis dissemination policy.
If the work you are requesting access to is restricted to the Caltech campus, we will attempt to secure permission from the author of the requested dissertation in order to make it publicly available for all users worldwide. Once made openly available, you may read the entire work online or download/print it for your individual use.
For dissertations published 1920-2016, ProQuest Dissertations Express Service, a commercial dissertation reseller, may be able to provide copies of select Caltech theses for a fee. Fulltext may not be available for all.
