Theses, Dissertations and Student Research Papers (Wood Science)


This collection was initiated in February 2008. Electronic Theses and Dissertations (ETDs) from the Department of Wood Science and Engineering (WSE) are mapped to this collection from the main Electronic Theses and Dissertations Collection in the ScholarsArchive@OSU. This collection includes degrees granted in Wood Science.

All theses and dissertations written by students enrolled in the College of Forestry or the School of Forestry (1923-1984) have been digitized and are available in the College of Forestry Community. Students in non-thesis degree programs in WSE are encouraged (but not required) to submit their final research papers to this site.

To find a thesis or dissertation for a particular degree at OSU, search in the OSU Libraries Catalog by author, title, or for programs/departments do a subject search for "theses osu -- [insert degree name]"
