Finding Theses and Dissertations
Theses and dissertations completed by University of Kentucky students can be found in InfoKat Discovery. For new theses and dissertations that have just been released, they may be findable on UKnowledge only until after they have been added to InfoKat Discovery.
Other resources for finding theses and dissertations include:
Database of open access graduate theses and dissertations published around the world. Metadata (information about the theses) comes from over 1,100 colleges, universities, and research institutions. OATD currently indexes over 5 million theses and dissertations (as of 10/1/19).
Many journal articles to which UK Libraries has access are available to you full-text online in .PDF format.
However, sometimes you may encounter a bibliographic record for an article to which we do not have access. When this happens, you can request that we get the article from another library using Interlibrary Loan (ILL).
If you have questions about or need assistance with ILL, please contact them.
