Finding Dissertations

USC Dissertations

Search USC Digital Library or ProQuest Dissertations & Theses 

If you have trouble locating a dissertation, contact the USC Digital Library via email at

Check out our Dissertations library guide for more information about locating, or borrowing doctoral dissertations. 

Non-USC Dissertations

ProQuest Dissertations & Theses is also a good source for locating digitized dissertations produced at other universities in the United States.

In addition, more and more universities no longer require students to deposit their dissertations with ProQuest so you may want to search for an university's institutional repository via Google and search within that digital collection for a particular publication.
