Q. How to search for dissertations, theses within Trine network and nationwide?
You can use the Research Hub to find theses and dissertations. Because the Research Hub will also search the holdings of libraries worldwide, you will see results from libraries accross the world. Here's how a search for dissertations might look:
You cannot limit to dissertations immediately from the first search box, but you can include "dissertation" or "thesis" as a search term.
When viewing your search results, you can limit to just selecting "Thesis/Dissertation" under Format to view just theses and dissertations.
If you see a "View Now" link you can link directly to the thesis or dissertation through the Trine network. If there is not a View Now link, you can request a copy of the thesis or dissertation through Interlibrary Loan.
