The IHS Thesis Lending Library now has 167 theses. Thirteen theses were added to the Library this year – 12 were purchased and 1 was donated. The theses are available for IHS members to borrow for a three-week period. The IHS supports this project with an annual budget to purchases theses and for mailing theses upon request. Borrowers submit a refundable deposit of $45 per theses and return them are their own expense. Theses published since 1996 are available in PDF format from the UMI/Proquest website.
