The location of a particular thesis or dissertation depends on a couple of things: its date and location of publication. If you’re looking for a Georgia State University thesis or dissertation, begin by searching ScholarWorks, the library’s repository for GSU publications. ScholarWorks has a special section for theses and dissertations. If the publication is older, you may also find it in the GSU Library catalog. You can search the catalog with the title of the work or with the author’s name. The catalog includes print and online theses and dissertations, so you may find that only print copies exist for older publications.

If the thesis or dissertation comes from another college or university, then you may want to begin by searching the Dissertations & Theses database.  If you still can't find it you can try ordering it through ILL.
