Can't locate a desired thesis or dissertation online?  In those exceptional instances where you have a reference to a completed thesis or dissertation, but cannot open up a full-text version online (e.g., via the aforementioned database - or other online databases) - you can consider:

  • Submitting a direct home delivery order for a personal copy of the dissertation using Proquest's fee-based service, ProQuest Dissertations Publishing OR
  • Requesting interlibrary loaned delivery of that thesis or dissertation, making that interlibrary loan request at an academic or public library near your residence with whom you also have a current affiliation.
