You will find Butler master's theses in both of the Butler libraries at the call number LD701.B82h, arranged in alphabetical order by the author's last name. 

In Irwin Library, the theses are in the basement in the Annex section, shelved against the south wall in the southwest quadrant. AS OF APRIL 10TH, 2017 THE THESIS COLLECTION HAS BEEN TEMPORARILY MOVED TO THE SOUTHEAST QUADRANT, BEGINNING IN ROW 9. ALL ITEMS REMAIN IN CALL NUMBER ORDER.

In the Science Library, ask for the Thesis Collection.  Check WorldCat Discovery if you are unsure which library will house the thesis.  The Honors theses are also shelved in both libraries depending upon subject area.  The call number is LD701.B82gb, so they will be shelved just before the master's theses. 

The Butler Libraries are beginning to convert the theses collection to digital form as permissions can be obtained from the authors.  At this time, some recent undergraduate honors' theses and manuscript master's theses from 1887 through 1911 are available online--see WorldCat Discovery to check the format available for the thesis you want, or go to the Digital Commons.  The print theses do not circulate unless we happen to have a second copy, but you are free to examine a thesis in the libraries.
