Where to find dissertations? And why use them?

Why search for dissertations?

  • You are having trouble finding books and journal articles on your topic.
  • You are exploring a new area of research.

A few suggestions on how to use dissertations:

  • Review the bibliography for relevant sources. Dissertations often have extremely comprehensive bibliographies.
  • See if the author has published an article(s) or a book related to the dissertation. If the author is of particular interest a good first step is to Google the author's name and see if you can find a list of publications by the author.
