Provided on a trial basis by the MIT Libraries' Document Services department and MIT Information Systems, this site offers the full text of selected master's and doctoral theses from all M.I.T. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) departments. These include theses that have been previously requested and scanned by Document Services as well as theses from the university's pilot project in electronically-submitted theses. Users can search the database by keyword, perform an advanced search with separate fields, or browse by author or year. All theses can be viewed as low-resolution (100dpi) grayscale inline .gif images. The most recent additions (1999) also include an abstract and the full text of the document in thumbnail pages. As would be expected, the vast majority of theses involve scientific topics.
