Dissertations & Theses

Dissertations and Theses indexes doctoral dissertations completed at accredited institutions. Full text is available for selected institutions 1997-present. Coverage varies by rights granted through the supplying institutions of higher education. Some dissertations from UALR are in full text. The number is increasing each year.

For those papers that are not full text in the database, it is possible to request the publication through Interlibrary Loan. Keep in mind that in most cases, the library at the institution where the paper was written will only have one copy and they may not loan it.

There are some times when the entire text of the dissertation may be more than you need. It is also possible to request the bibliography from a dissertation or thesis. Fill in the Interlibrary Loan form as if you were requesting the entire document and then in the Notes section of the form, indicate that you only need the bibliography.
