This collection contains doctoral dissertations and master's capstone projects that include a substantive online or digital component to the work. The Graduate Center Library preserves these related digital projects using methods outlined on our Depositing Digital Work guide. Format guidelines for documenting digital projects for deposit were implemented in May 2018. The MA Program in Liberal Studies added a capstone project option in 2015; prior to that, all graduating students deposited their work under the "thesis" category.

As of 2014, all newly submitted Graduate Center dissertations and theses appear in Academic Works shortly after graduation. Some works are immediately available to read and download, and some become available after an embargo period set by the author. Dissertations and theses from before 2014 are generally accessible only to the CUNY community, but some authors have chosen to make theirs open access.
