Electronic theses are submitted to eScholarship@McGill via the Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies Office. Once the Office has ensured that all requirements for graduation have been met, it authorizes release of the thesis to the Library. Approved theses are available online within a few weeks after graduation.
Electronic theses are also fully catalogued and appear in the Library Catalogue.
