The John M. Pfau Library is at work on a project to digitize its collection of CSUSB Master's Theses, Master's Projects, and Doctoral Dissertations. Prior to 2014, the theses were available only in hard copy. Starting in 2014, all theses, projects, and dissertations were produced in digital versions only. View theses 2014-present here.

Initial funding for the digitization project was provided by a grant from CSUSB's Vital and Expanded Technologies Initiative, which allocates designated funds from the Student Success Initiative fee. We thank the VETI committee for supporting this project to showcase the intellectual endeavors of CSUSB graduates.

The first digitized theses were posted here in January 2017. We will digitize the oldest theses first. The files will be scanned with OCR to make the text accessible to users with visual disabilities and will receive basic structural markup to make them friendly to screen-readers. For privacy, advisors’ signatures will be redacted before the files are posted.

In keeping with ScholarWorks' mission as an open access repository, all files will be freely available. Based on our interpretation of the HathiTrust and Google Books copyright cases, the library considers that digitizing and indexing texts for accessibility constitutes a fair use, and for that reason we will not be seeking copyright permission from each individual author.

Opting Out or Requesting Quick Digitization

If you are the author of a CSUSB thesis and do not want the full text of your work posted in ScholarWorks, please notify us via the Digitization Project Request Form. Alternatively, if you would like your thesis digitized as soon as possible, please use the request form to let us know that too! All such requests will be honored, but must come from the author of the work.

Because post-2014 theses/projects in Creative Writing were not posted in ScholarWorks, the digitization project will not post older Creative Writing theses without the author’s express permission.

If you have any questions, please contact project coordinator Stacy Magedanz, magedanz@csusb.edu or (909) 537-5103.
