Lately, we have been getting numerous requests through interlibrary loan for dissertations, and we have been cancelling the requests since we do have access to them in the ProQuest Dissertations & Theses Global database. Don’t get me wrong. We love our Discover! search feature. It covers about 95% of the databases that we subscribe to in a single search, but what falls in the other 5%? Well, access to full text of dissertations is part of the uncovered material, so before you click on that Request through interlibrary loan option, take one more step.
When you see this it’s time to perform one more search.
Just follow the instructions for “How do I obtain a copy of a thesis/dissertation online through the Leatherby Libraries?”
We want you to have the fastest access to the information you need. If you need any assistance with locating a thesis or dissertation, just contact your Brandman library staff. We’re here to help.
