Dissertations & Theses

As an advance search consider looking at dissertations and theses for literature reviews and their bibliographies. For current research and topics not yet published in a book or articles, these publications can be very resourceful.

ProQuest Dissertations and Theses is mostly a full text resource. For dissertations/theses not available in full text, you can request it through ILL. You can also refine your search in OneSearch by limiting the  "Resource Type" (show more) to limit by Collection to Theses and Dissertations to find Masters theses that focused on the San Jose area.
