SENIOR THESES for the Class of 2014 are available online to the campus community via an Internet database called DataSpace. The University Archives recently launched an online archive of senior theses that can be viewed on any computer on the Princeton network and will be used to catalog theses of future graduates. Special Collections Assistant Lynn Durgin said the majority of theses from the Class of 2014 are available, although students were given the option to embargo their theses for up to three years if they include confidential information. Theses from 1924 to 2013 can be accessed on computers in the reading room of Mudd Manuscript Library.
