Theses & Dissertations
The files contain the same information as the previous paper publication, and include a listing for each master's and doctoral degree in Geology conferred at The University of Texas at Austin from 1897 to the present. The list also includes some additional theses and dissertations done by UT students regardless of academic department that are part of the Walter Library thesis collection because they are of interest to geologists. Not every thesis or dissertation completed in the Department of Geological Sciences is in the Walter Library's collection, but the University of Texas Libraries maintains a central archive collection of every thesis and dissertation.
The records include the full title, date, names of supervisor and co-supervisor (if any), degree type, and year of graduation.
The subject index is provided for older Theses and Dissertations and is based on keywords selected from the titles and enhancement terms provided by faculty. County names, and oil and gas field names are in Texas, unless otherwise noted. Specific place names are used where appropriate in favor of more general names for regions or political entities. Entries under Texas should refer to studies of the entire state, and entries under Central Texas should include studies designated as such. Narrower terms have been favored over broader ones, and sub-headings have been used sparingly. The distinction between city names and areas centered on a city should also be noted.
The supervisor index lists the entry number of works completed by students under the supervision or co-supervision of UT-Austin faculty. Co-supervisors are cross-indexed.
