Most of the dissertations presented here are hosted and managed by ProQuest (the former University Microfilms). Users from University of Nebraska-Lincoln IP's will have full-text access. Users from off campus can see the title, abstract, and a free 24-page preview, with the option to buy electronic or paper copies. Users from off-campus with a UNL ID card can also get free full-text access; they will be asked to authenticate via the UNL proxy server with their name and ID number.

Some dissertations will appear twice in this series; this means that one link goes to an "open access" version, deposited in the UNL Digital Commons by its author for worldwide free full-text access.
