About this subject guide

This guide highlights various resources for locating and obtaining theses.
Theses, also called dissertations, are written reports which contain the results of original research undertaken for a master's or doctoral degree. If you are starting your research, it will be helpful to know if anyone has already written a thesis on the topic. Reading theses on similar topics can help you to formulate approaches to your own research and the bibliographies of the theses can help you identify relevant literature in the field.

Use the tabs above to identify the best sources, or explore the links to further resources.
