UofSC Dissertations and Theses: Dissertations from Other Universities

This guide shows you all your options for identifying and getting your hands on USC doctoral dissertations, master's theses, and Honors College theses.

U.S. Dissertations

Search Dissertations and Theses to identify and possibly retrieve dissertations from other institutions.  If the fulltext is not available, USC affiliates can make an Interlibrary Loan request and we'll try to get it for you.

Foreign Dissertations from the Center for Research Libraries

Coverage of non-U.S. dissertations in Dissertations and Theses is growing. It can be difficult to identify and obtain copies of foreign dissertations.

The Center for Research Libraries (CRL) actively collects foreign dissertations and provides them to member institutions like the University of South Carolina through interlibrary loan.  Please allow extra time -- if the dissertation you need is already at CRL, it will come quickly, but if they need to purchase it, it may take six months to a year.
