The University of Colorado Theses & Dissertations Collections contains electronic versions of University of Colorado Denver theses from the school's founding in the 1970s to present and is inclusive of retrospectively digitized works and ETDs, or electronic theses and dissertations.


Auraria Library has made dilligent efforts to contact all authors of theses published prior to 2012 to secure non-exclusive internet distribution rights. Many authors cannot be found, however, and in order to maintain consistent digital access to all CU Denver theses and dissertations, we have determined that an author opt-out policy is most effective. If you are an author and do not wish your thesis or dissertation to be publicly available, please contact the repository administrator. Auraria Library maintains a strict take-down policy and will not refuse any such requests by concerned authors.
