The University of Maine Electronic Theses and Dissertations (ETD) project is a joint effort of Fogler Library and the Graduate School. Our goals are "to improve graduate education, increase sharing of knowledge, help universities build their information infrastructure, and extend the value of digital libraries," in keeping with those of the Networked Digital Library of Theses and Dissertations, a national initiative of which the University of Maine is a member.

This online collection features the final theses and dissertations approved by the Graduate School of the University of Maine.

For more information about finding additional theses and dissertations or obtaining copies of those not available electronically, see Fogler Library's Subject Guide on Theses & Dissertations.

Questions can also be directed to Fogler Library's Special Collections Department by phone at (207) 581-1686 or email at um.library.spc @ maine.edu.
