Dissertations and Theses

This guide will show you the various ways in which you can find dissertations and theses at NMSU.

Finding NMSU Dissertations and Theses Online

NMSU Dissertations are available full-text online through the Dissertations@NMSU database. This database offers full-text to all doctoral dissertations dating back to the 1960s and masters theses from 2019 to the present.  Pre-2019 theses from NMSU are can be searched  in the Library catalog.  Copies of theses and dissertations can be purchased from ProQuest through this database.

Finding Print Copies of Dissertations and Theses

The easiest way to look up print copies of dissertations and theses (this is the only way an NMSU Thesis can be found), as well as dissertations and theses prior to 1960, is to do a title or author search in the library catalog.  To find hard copy dissertations on particular topics, visit the NMSU Library Catalog, click "Advanced Search" and change the "Resource Type" field to "Dissertations." 

You can also use the Resource Type "Dissertations" to filter search results.

NMSU keeps two copies of all doctoral dissertations and theses. One copy is a "library use only" copy kept in Branson Special Collections. The circulating copies are kept in the Zuhl library.
