"How do I find dissertations?"


To find dissertations published here at Cornell and elsewhere:

  • ProQuest has the UMI collection of dissertations published 1996-present. Members of the Cornell community have free access to PDF versions of many of the dissertations.
  • The Library Catalog contains records for Cornell dissertations. Use the Advanced Search option and limit the Content to Thesis/dissertation.
  • Not all Cornell theses published before 1973 are included in the Library Catalog. If you are looking for a pre-1973 Cornell thesis and cannot find it in the Library Catalog, contact reference for further help.
