The SAIC Thesis Repository is a digital archive of recent, print theses produced by the students of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Beginning in November 2013, new theses are digitized as they are received by the library. Works in this repository can be read online from any location on the SAIC campus.

Archival paper copies of theses are kept in the SAIC/AIC libraries.
