Q. What database should I use to access dissertations?
To specifically search for dissertations, you can use the database Dissertations and Theses. Start at the library homepage https://www.uhd.edu/library/Pages/library-index.aspx, and look at the menu on the left of the screen, and select Databases>>"D">>Dissertation & Theses. From this database, you can search your topic.
You can also use the Libsearch tool on the library homepage. 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 Filter by Source Type. Check the box for Dissertation or Thesis.
