Why can't I access a particular thesis (etd)?

Some authors embargo their theses, restricting access to only WVU students, faculty, and staff. 

To access an embargoed thesis, log in with your WVU Login username and password. 

A very small number of theses are embargoed for everyone, pending publication or patent.
