Dissertations & Theses database now available

Written by Jon Ritterbush, Electronic Resources Librarian

Curious to explore what other students have published on various subjects? The library now offers access to ProQuest’s Dissertations & Theses database, replacing Dissertation Abstracts Online via FirstSearch.

Dissertations & Theses provides improved access to over 2.7 million citations of doctoral dissertations and master’s or honors theses published from around the world since 1637.   In addition, this new database provides abstracts and 24-page PDF previews of many dissertations and theses published since 1997.   A smaller number of  dissertations and theses are also available in full-text online, if published at a university that provides open access.

Dissertations & Theses is listed under the “Ds” and the “Dissertations & Theses” category of the library’s “Articles & E-Resources” webpage.
