Finding Dissertations

Theses and Dissertations can be a rich source of information that may not be discoverable in other databases, because the information may not have been published.

Dissertations written at UF:

  • Search the UF Libraries' Catalog for all print and online theses.
    •  Search for "Dissertations  Academic -- UF" as well as the department or major keywords for the topic.
    • Materials will either be available in print (with a call number) or available electronically (online) through the catalog.
    • For more help, visit here.

Dissertations written outside of UF:

  • Search the database WorldCat Dissertations and Theses: lists theses and published material from around the world. Not as much full-text, but you can request items using Interlibrary Loan.
  • Search ProQuest Dissertations and Theses to identify many dissertations written at many universities. Not as exhaustive as Worldcat and does not include dissertations from Harvard or MIT. Does not include Masters theses. More full text available.

Obtaining copies of dissertations written outside UF:

  • Search the database: ProQuest Dissertations & Theses. Full text is available for approximately one third of the theses indexed in the database.
