Finding Theses and Dissertations: Theses from Other Universities

How to find print and electronic theses & dissertations not published at the U of S.


The U of S Library catalogue contains approximately 800 e-theses from other universities.  Many more theses are available through the databases listed below.


The library has a limited number of non-U of S theses available in our print collection.  In the catalogue, search under Word using keywords and “theses”.

The catalogue search box from the library's homepage. The option "Theses Collection" from the first drop-down menu is selected.

Getting the Theses

Theses and dissertations are minimally published and may only be available from the university which granted the degree.  Some theses and dissertations can be made available through Interlibrary Loan, while others may have to be purchased.
