Retrospective Dissertation Scanning Project
The George A. Smathers Libraries has initiated a project to retrospectively digitize and make available on the Internet any dissertation written by a University of Florida doctoral candidate and accepted by the University of Florida. It is our goal to make the documents fully text searchable and easily harvested by Internet search engines, allowing the full breadth and scope of scholarship produced at the University of Florida to be made available across the world quickly and easily.
Please note that there will be no cost to the author for this service. This project is entirely supported using Library resources.
To see an example of a paper dissertation that has been converted, please see the 1955 dissertation by Julian Granberry, A Survey of Bahamian Archeology.
