This guide aspires to be a catalog of resources for finding dissertations and theses at other universities worldwide, including those subscribed to by the Limestone University Library. It is intended to be a stepwise guide to searching--a best practices and training guide for staff and library users alike. The term thesis is used to describe work at any level, undergraduate to doctoral. Dissertation is used to describe doctoral-level work.
Find out whether the thesis desired is a doctoral thesis (dissertation), a master's thesis, or an undergraduate (usually honors) thesis. Different types of theses require different search strategies.
Dissertations and theses may be available as printed looseleaf or bound manuscripts, on microfilm, or full text online.
The newly enhanced database includes more than 172,000 theses and dissertations in total, including 80,000 new citations for theses and dissertations from 1902 to the present. The new citations include a link to access the full text, when available, via the Institutional Repository where the thesis or dissertation is housed, such as OhioLINK, Rochester Institute of Technology and North Carolina State University.
