Finding Dissertations

Ever think of looking for dissertations that might help your own research? Chances are, if you have a great research idea, there's probably at least one other academic who has delved into the same realm.

The Digital Dissertations database can be accessed on campus or via VPN off-campus.

You can access:

- Full text of University of California dissertations published since 1997
- Abstracts of dissertations and theses from other Universities that you can order
- Abstracts of doctoral dissertations (post-1980) and for masters' theses (post-1988)
- Content dating back to 1861

View this brief narrated tutorial to learn how to search the Digital Dissertations database.
