Education Theses & Dissertations


Steps to locating University of Manitoba Theses and Dissertations

Recent theses and dissertations are available online through the University of Manitoba Libraries. Most of the documents available online date from 2005 to most recently completed.

Below are instructions on how to access the documents for registered student and non-registered students.

Registered Students
Use your Library ID and PIN to locate dissertations in the Library Database. This is the most effective method to search for previously completed theses, however you can use the library catalogue if you prefer. 

Non-Registered Students
If you are not a University of Manitoba student, you can be assigned a temporary ID and PIN from a library staff member at any of the U of M libraries to access the Library Databases. The Library Databases are the most effective means for accessing past theses and dissertations. Alternatively, you can use the library catalogue to find what you are looking for.

  • Visit the University of Manitoba Libraries’ webpage.
  • In the middle column under Find, click on Library Catalogue Search
