Finding Dissertations

Dissertations and theses can be an excellent source of bibliographic citations, since they typically include an exhaustive overview of scholarship current at the time of their completion. Advanced researchers exploring the current state of scholarship on their research topic can also benefit from examining the approaches and methodologies adopted by recent dissertators. Finally, graduate students about to embark on their own thesis or dissertation may find it useful to peruse examples of how this special genre of scholarship can be structured and organized.

(For some general guidance on preparing dissertations, please consult this page with tips for thesis and dissertation writers in the Graduate Student Services research guide.)
