Dissertation Information for Graduate Students

Welcome to  another busy fall semester. If you are PhD. student, you may want to get started on your dissertation. This post is intended to provide graduate students with information that will help facilitate this process. Here are some basic questions & answers:

  • How do I get help with my research? Contact the subject librarian for your department. Cards for subject librarians are also available at the Research Support Desk on the 2nd floor of Library North (404-413-2800) or you can use Live Assistance to get contact information.
  • How do I find dissertations by other students? Search the Proquest database, Dissertations & Theses, found in the library databases. Also many subject databases will include abstracts of dissertations.
  • How do I get a copy of a dissertation? Send a request to Interlibrary Loan or go to the library web page to see if it’s available in an institutional repository. Georgia State University has an archive called Digital Archive @ Georgia State University where many dissertations are available in full text.
  • How do I get help submitting my dissertation? See the library research guide, ETDS-Electronic Theses & Dissertations for helpful information.

Still have questions? Contact the Research Support Desk at 404-313-2800 or contact your friendly subject librarian.
