I had a question today about whether or not we keep Barnard theses, and since I didn't know the answer right away, I thought I'd share it in case the rest of you didn't either.
- We do not generally collect Barnard theses and do not intend to do so in the future.
- Some departments retain them. Interested parties should contact the department for which the student wrote her thesis.
- Selected theses have been retained by the library--those of famous graduates and those that had to do with Barnard. Donald has a list of these in the archives; they are not in CLIO.
- We have all the senior (A.B.) theses from 1893 to 1905. They are cataloged as a collection in CLIO.
