To ascertain the availability of theses and dissertations, the best place to look is a library database called Dissertations & Theses

This database includes citations for over 2.3 million dissertations and theses from around the world, ranging from 1861 to those accepted last semester. Where available, twenty-four page previews are provided. In addition, more than 750,000 are available for download in PDF format.

Search using the author's name, key words from the title, or the general subject area.

Here's an another way to get to this database if you are starting from the Central University Libraries' homepage, https://sites.smu.edu/cul/.

  1. Click on the Database tab in the blue search box
  2. Type Dissertations & Theses in the search box or click on Databases by Subject or Title
  3. Select D on Databases by Title. Select Dissertations & Theses from the alphabetical list.
