Thesis & Dissertation Database Examples

During the process of writing your thesis or dissertation, it can be helpful to read those submitted by other students.

Luckily, many universities have databases where you can find out who has written about your topic previously and how they approached it. While some databases are only accessible via your university library, more and more universities are making these databases public.
