Open Access Dissertations and Theses

It is now possible to access full-text dissertations and theses through PDQT/ProQuest:

The dissertations and theses are from all disciplines, so it's better to know the author and/or title. There is an advanced search engine which has further options, e.g., keywords.

So far this does not appear particularly valuable. A search on the keywords "Old Testament," "Hebrew Bible," and "New Testament" returned only six hits (total). Nevertheless the dissertations were recent and were from some top rate universities (e.g., Yale). Hopefully, ProQuest will make more available soon.
