Find a CGU dissertation that isn't fulltext in Dissertations & Theses

I know the author or title

Search Blais just as you would for a book, by author or title. There will usually be two copies, one that you can check out, and one in Special Collections archives that must be used in the Special Collections Reading Room. Check the Special Collections hours first, if you need to read their copy

I don't know the title

Use Dissertations & Theses; use the menu to search School, type Claremont Graduate University. Use another menu to select Subject; use a program such as “business,” “management,” “psychology,” “education,” “music,” “art,” “religion,” “economics,” or “politics.” Reduce the size of the list by picking specific years.

I want to find ones with my Adviser

Dissertations & Theses lets you search this way. But be cautious! Not all records have this field, and some use the department chair instead. If you get a zero result, use subject instead.

Where do I find these in Honnold/Mudd?

When you find a dissertation you want, and it doesn't have the Free Download button, go to Blais and search by title. Usually you'll get just one result. Make a note of the HON call number (rather than the HON SPCL ARCHIVE call number). Staff will direct you to the location. If you have borrowing privileges, you can check it out. If the only copy has HON SPCL ARCHIVE as the location, or the stacks copy is checked out, you will need to use this archives copy in the Special Collections Reading Room during the hours they are open. Check Special Collections for access and hours.

Can I see all the CGU dissertations in Blais?

Search by LC Call No.; Type XC 10.22 to see all Ph.D. dissertations or type XC 10.2 to see Master's theses and Ph.D. dissertations. (These are the call numbers for archives copies, but the call number for a copy you can check out will be there too.) This search will retrieve dissertations from about 1965 to the present. For older dissertations, consult the Special Collections librarians.
