Theses and dissertations submitted between 2010 and 2015 have been migrated from the library’s previous digital archives and are available here.

If you are the author of a Rowan University (or Glassboro State College) thesis or dissertation produced before 2010, and you do not want your document to be publicly available in Rowan Digital Works, you must complete and submit this form to request its removal from the repository.
