Theses and Dissertations outside NWMSU

ProQuest Dissertations Express and WorldCat (select "Advanced search" and choose "Thesis/dissertations" in the "Content:" drop-down box) includes dissertation abstracts from most academic institutions throughout the U.S. and many international institutions. Title, author, year, pages, and university is available, but not full-text or abstracts.  Request dissertations through Interlibrary Loan.  NOTE: Dissertations have a limited number of publications so institutions may not loan to other libraries.
