Dissertation Express Proquest
Whether you’re an author, researcher, or publishing institution, there are multiple ways for you to order a dissertation through ProQuest. You can do the searching, or we’ll do it for you. Order once, or set up an ongoing schedule. You can even work with expert bibliographers and database specialists to create a selection profile and criteria that result in automatic delivery of the materials you need, as soon as they become available—and you retain the right to return anything that falls outside your criteria, for full credit.

Dissertation Express for ILL:Dissertation Express is a service offered at no charge to interlibrary loan (ILL) offices at academic libraries. Without incurring any overhead, librarians can offer students and faculty the option of buying copies of dissertations or master's theses instead of borrowing them through ILL.
Titles are available in your choice of formats:
- hardbound paper
- unbound paper
- softbound paper
Copies are custom-made from the microfilm masters in our vaults when we receive an order, so dissertations and theses can be returned only if there are production defects.
ProQuest Dissertation Publishing's point of contact is the ILL office, and the ILL office is responsible for the following:
- Collecting the copy price (in U.S. dollars) in advance from customers
- Transmitting orders to us through a web-based interface
- Holding titles we send for patron pickup
- Passing on the copy price (in U.S. dollars) in response to our invoices
