The Thesis Library
The Department maintains a History 102 Thesis Library, temporarily held in 3313 Dwinnelle, for student access. The library holds all papers with High Honors and Highest Honors designations dating back to 2005. Due to library capacity limitations, papers designated either Honors or Non-Honors are purged after five years.
Guidelines for Reviewing Theses
For Spring 2024: While the department is working on getting all physical theses digitized, a selection of theses are available to view online here. If you would like to request to see a physical thesis in person, please email the Director of Student Services at firstname.lastname@example.org. When you come to review a particular thesis, please have your Cal ID with you and plan to stay in the History Department office while you review the paper, as theses are not to leave the office.
While you are encouraged to take hand-written notes, theses may not be photocopied, photographed, or marked up in any way.
