Searching for Dissertations & Theses: The publishing world has changed for dissertations and theses. You may find full-text or 25-page previews in subject-related databases (ProQuest Central, ERIC, CINAHL, etc.).

  • If you've already identified a dissertation or thesis and are seeking the full-text version, try searching the graduating institution's website or library for that dissertation/thesis title. 
  • Otherwise, try the following tools to identify the literature - and - if you've lucky - score a free copy of one.

Department Liaison Librarians

Every academic department and many college initiatives and service departments have been assigned a librarian.  The liaison librarian is designated to be an information specialist for your department.   Work of the liaison librarian may include:

  • attending academic department meetings to better understand your curriculum needs
  • creating and curating Subject Guides supporting your department
  • handling collection development (selection & weeding) of the print, audiovisual media, and e-formatted materials making up the library collections supporting your department
  • working on outside accreditation efforts (please contact your librarian one year prior to accreditors' visits)
  • one-on-one and/or department information literacy sessions for faculty
  • advise on copyright issues
  • assistance with OER materials
  • creating information literacy materials for classes taught within the library's instructional program
  • assisting departmental committees with research-related needs

If your department does not have a liaison librarian, please contact Nan Schichtel at 616-234-3082.
