An incredible amount of scholarly, easily-accessed information can be found in dissertations. Use them to find:
1. Dissertations full text (PQDT) - ProQuest Dissertations and Theses Global - except for a handful of schools and old thesis, essentially all full-text dissertations from North American universities. British disseratons are now also represented.
2. British dissertations (EThOS) - British Library's service of UK dissertations. Not as comprehensive as PQDT, but worth searching.
Document Delivery (formerly known as Interlibrary Loan) borrows books, DVDs and journal articles from other libraries--internationally--for use by you. For books, use the Worldcat link (next tab on this guide).
Your Duke id is a UNC, NC State and NC Central library card!
If you see an item available at one of our TRLN (Triangle Region Library Network) libraries and you can't wait for Document Delivery, you may check out the book directly by going to that library and charging it with your Duke ID.
A truck runs daily between TRLN libraries to deliver material faster between these institutions.
