The theses are cataloged in the Libraries online catalog and are housed in the annex.
To find a senior thesis in the catalog you can search by author or title if you know them. If you only know part of the title try an advanced search with a word you know in "keyword" and limit the location to "Archive/SpecColl (Thesis)."
To request a thesis, contact the Archives and Special Collections Library staff. If you make a request before 1:30 p.m., the thesis should be available the next business day (M-F). You will receive an email when your thesis has arrived.
Members of the Vassar community (students, faculty, staff and administrators) may view theses in the Archives and Special Collections Library.
Copying of theses, in whole or in part, requires permission of the author. It is the researcher's responsibility to contact the author and gain that permission.
Researchers outside of the Vassar community (including alumnae/i) must receive the permission of the author to view or copy theses.
Transfer of Senior Theses
All theses transferred to the Archives and Special Collections Library will be accessible according to the policies above.
Departments who would like to transfer some or all of their senior theses should first contact the Archives and Special Collections Library staff.
You will then be asked to fill out a Records Transfer Form.
Once your form has been received, you can fill out a work order to have Buildings and Grounds transfer the materials to the Library for cataloging.
