Search Instructions

The fastest way to identify and validate a dissertation is to enter the last seven characters of the UMI order number. If you don't have this, enter a word or phrase into the search terms field or the author's last name and the first four words of the dissertation title.

Search terms - Enter a word or phrase related to the dissertation. Use "quotation marks" to search for exact phrases.

Order Number - Enter the last seven characters of the UMI order number. (Example: for citation DA9412718, you should enter "9412718")

Author - Enter the author's last name or the author's last name, first name. (Examples: "Smith" or "Smith, Jane")

Title - There's no need to enter the entire title. Usually, the first four or five words will be sufficient to identify the dissertation.
