Q. What database should I use to access dissertations?

I am writing a paper on the Biological theoretical approach to gender.



Thanks for using Ask a Librarian.  

To specifically search Dissertations and Theses, you can use the database ProQuest Dissertations and Theses.  You can find this database by starting at the library home page https://www.uhd.edu/library/Pages/library-index.aspx, and looking at the menu on the left of the screen, and selecting Databases & Articles, and then Databases A-Z.  Select P for Proquest.  From this database, you can search your topic.  

You can also use the Libsearch tool.  To limit your search to graduate theses, start with the LibSearch tool from the library home page. Search your terms. 

From the results page, look at the column on the left under the heading Content Type.  Check the box for Dissertation or Thesis (You may have to check the "more" link to see the Dissertation or Thesis option.  After you click the "more" link, find Dissertation or Thesis and check the "Include" column.  This will limit your results.
