Looking for a thesis or dissertation

If you are looking for theses and dissertations search the following databases. You can do a basic keyword search or search for a specific title or author. If you find a dissertation that is not available in full text, you can request it through Inter-library Loan. Keep in mind that some dissertations are not available for free, and you will have to pay to receive a copy of it.

  • Proquest-all databases limit your search to Dissertations & Theses, under 'Source Type'.
  • The Library Search Box: make sure you limit your search to 'Dissertations' under 'Show Content Type'.
  • Dissertations and Theses Open (PQDT Open): this repository holds the full text of open access dissertations and theses. The authors of these dissertations and theses have chosen open access publication of their works, thus providing free access from the Internet.
