There are two answers.
1) If you want or need very specific dissertations: you request them individually, we obtain them for you, and then you reimburse us for the cost (paying only what we paid for it, we don't add any fees). Dissertations delivered as .pdf files are usually about $30-$35 each.
...or the less expensive, less specific option...
2) You can use dissertations that are available for free. Here's how to find them:
- From the Library's homepage (library.piedmont.edu), click on the Online Research A-Z link on the right side of the screen.
- Then select "Dissertations & Theses" from the All Types menu at top. This will take you to a list of online databases offering dissertations and dissertation abstracts (or summaries).
- All the dissertations available through Georgia State, Piedmont College, and the University of Georgia are available for free,
- But your best bet is PQDT Open. Once you've selected it from the list, enter your search terms. Rest assured that anything you turn up will be freely (and instantly!) available.
All that said, if your instructor is requiring you to read a specific dissertation that is not available for free, he or she needs to let us know, and we can provide that document for everyone as an electronic reserve.
