√ Completed Ph.D.

This page includes information on 95 students who have completed their doctoral study, with their dissertation titles and current positions. I served as adviser or research director on 28 of these projects; other times as committee member or external examiner. There are several other dissertations underway.

Most of the studies were done through Library & Information Science or Curriculum & Instruction, but over a third were done across 15 other departments in the US, Australia, and Ireland.

I’ve included links to the dissertations in most cases, especially the more recent ones. Others may be found in IDEALS. Otherwise, the best way to view a copy is to contact the author.
