If you are proud to call yourself an Indiana University Folklore graduate, you may share your thesis or dissertation with the world by depositing it in the IUScholarWorks digital repository (see Twelve of your fellow folklorists have already done so, but there are many more who should seriously consider doing the same.

IUScholarWorks is an open-access solution for disseminating your work. Everything deposited there is open for all to read, preserved forever, and discoverable via Google and other search engines.

If you sent a copy of your dissertation to ProQuest (formerly UMI Dissertation Abstracts), it is behind a paywall; only members of schools that subscribe to the database, or those who order a personal copy, may read it.

The following folklorists (listed in roughly chronological order), have opened their dissertations so far. If you are interested in joining them, contact the open folklore team HERE.
