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.
