Finding Theses

To find theses by Drexel AADM graduates, search the catalog. There is a link in each record for electronic access to the thesis/dissertation collection in our institutional depository, iDEA. Click on the link, to be taken into iDEA, but then you still have to click AGAIN to get the PDF document. To find theses outside of Drexel, search the database Digital Dissertations from UMI. UMI publishes and archives dissertations and theses; sells copies on demand; and maintains the definitive bibliographic record for over 2 million doctoral dissertations and master’s theses. Digital Dissertations provides electronic access in PDF format for the first 24 pages of titles published since 1997, which is a great way to know if the title is really what you are looking for. If you find that you need to get the whole document - don’t buy it via Digital Dissertations. Request a copy to borrow via our Inter-library loan department
