Research Tips

Theses and Dissertations are very valuable resources for scholarly researchers.  Even if the thesis or dissertation does not exactly match your topic, it could prove very useful in furthering your research efforts.

Consider, the key to doing research is to "Use Sources to Find Sources".  Theses and Dissertations make excellent sources of information for finding more excellent sources of information.

Usually, the bibliography of a thesis or dissertation is extensive and will most often contain the better scholarly sources as well as primary sources.  As a scholarly researcher, you will want to identify theses and dissertations even if they only vaguely make mention of your topic.  Scan the bibliographies for potential sources of information that will give you more detailed information related to your topic.
