Thesis and Dissertation Office - Find a Manuscript


ATTENTION: Electronic submission of manuscripts is REQUIRED beginning with Fall 2014. Not all web pages have been completely updated and may have contradictory information. Please contact the Thesis and Dissertation Office if you have any questions or concerns about the submission process.


Find a Thesis 

  • To locate the printed copy of a CSULB Thesis in the Library, search COAST by author or by title
  • To identify theses written at CSULB by subject or by department, use the keyword search in COAST (e.g., long beach thesis and social work).
  • If you are a current member of the CSULB community, you can also search CSULB theses published since 1973 via our Dissertations and Theses database. CSULB theses published since 1997 are available for free downloading (full text) via this database. CSULB theses published prior to 1997 can be purchased through the Dissertations and Theses database or can be viewed in print in the Library.
  • If you are not a current member of the CSULB community, you can access full text versions of CSULB theses published since 2009 via the ProQuest PQDT Open Access database. Be aware that there is a period of about six weeks between the delivery of the manuscript to ProQuest and its online availability. Also, the thesis author may set up an embargo of six months to two years that prohibits public access to a document during the embargo. To access a CSULB thesis published in 2008 or earlier, you should ask your own library to request the thesis through Interlibrary Services or you can go to the ProQuest dissertations website and purchase a copy.
