How to Search, Request to View, and Order Princeton University Senior Theses

Imaging Services

The Seeley G. Mudd Manuscript Library is the central repository for Princeton University Senior Theses. You can search for a thesis in the Princeton University digital repository, DataSpace, for theses from 1924-Present.

Theses from 1924-2012 are in paper format or are on microfiche and can only be viewed at the Seeley G. Mudd Manuscript Library. Senior theses created in 2013 and later are in digital format (mainly PDFs) and are stored in DataSpace.

Members of the University community do not need to visit the Mudd Manuscript Library to view theses from 2014-present since they are accessible in full-text, digital format from any Princeton-networked computer.

Those outside of the University network and those requesting theses from 1924-2012 may request a digital copy of a thesis for a fee by completing the Senior Thesis Order Form.

  • A small percentage of digital theses are restricted to viewing on computers in the Mudd Library (Walk-in Access), but digital copies can be purchased for a fee. Restrictions are noted in DataSpace. 

We do require all first time visitors of the Library to register for a Special Collections Research Account. Further information about visiting Mudd Library can be found here.
