Finding Dissertations

This guide helps you locate NYU, U.S., and international dissertations and theses.


NYU Dissertations

The Division of Libraries maintains a non-comprehensive collection of doctoral dissertations completed at New York University. Many of the dissertations available in our collection are cataloged in the Library Catalog.  Recent dissertations completed at NYU can be found in the database Dissertations and Theses Global.  Guidance on the use of both resources is included in this guide.

Non-NYU Institutions' Dissertations

NYU holds very few dissertations completed at other institutions. For those dissertations which are not in our collection this guide also provides guidance on how to acquire or borrow copies.
