Citations and abstracts for doctoral dissertations and some theses from American and Canadian universities, and some international universities. Electronic full text of some works is available. If full text is not available, request a copy through interlibrary loan.
With more than 2 million entries, PQD&T is the single, central, authoritative resource for information about doctoral dissertations and master's theses.
A good tool if you have the title of a specific dissertation. Google Scholar will provide a link to the full text if the work is open access (freely available online).
Google Scholar enables you to search specifically for scholarly literature, including peer-reviewed papers, theses, books, preprints, abstracts and technical reports from all broad areas of research. Use Google Scholar to find articles from a wide variety of academic publishers, professional societies, preprint repositories and universities, as well as scholarly articles available across the web. Once you set your institutional preferences, links to full-text, if available at Penn State, should appear.
