The full text of some Cornell dissertations is available online in PQDTG beginning with June ; a few pre dissertations are also available online. Before , only some Cornell dissertations were digitized. Since , all Cornell dissertations--with the exception of embargoed titles--are also available full-text online in the eCommons Cornell Theses and Dissertations collection see the embargo discussion below. The Catalog lists the dissertations available in the Cornell University Library.
Note that some catalog records for dissertations do not have subject headings. Many theses and dissertations are organized by degree program using a general Library of Congress Classification. For example, theses in the field of mathematics will begin with the call number Thesis QA Click here for a list of degree programs with call number classifications. Knowing this classification, you can construct a call number browse in the online catalog to retrieve a list of theses by thesis call number. To browse a thesis call number classification, do a Call Number search in the Catalog.
Enter the term Thesis and add the first two letters of the classification. Do not enter the number. After entering the Thesis 2-letter classification, it is usually necessary to scroll down or move forward through a number of pages to see all the theses classified in in a given subject area. Further, theses starting with the same letters but different numbers QA 10 and QA 70, for example , may sort out of numerical order in the call number browse. In general, theses with the same beginning call number are sorted in chronological order from oldest to newest; the next part of the call number after Thesis QA 10, for example, is the year of the thesis i.
We also have a set of thesis catalog cards organized by department in a cabinet located in the hallway of the Olin staff area. The department serves as a rough subject guide for these dissertations. This card set covers approximately up to about Cards are filed in chronological order within each department. Note that some records do not have subject headings.
These records are searchable by title and author words. The Thesis Distribution List is a useful aid for browsing Cornell theses by general subject. It shows the Library of Congress call number assigned to Cornell theses for each degree program on campus and which library houses that department's theses. For example, the search takes the form "thesis PR15" for theses in English Literature. The results lists can be quite lengthy. Citations and abstracts for Weill dissertations may also be found in ProQuest Dissertations and Theses Global see Step 1, above for to date.
ProQuest's turn time typically averages about 4 to 6 weeks from receipt to online publication. A pre-published copy of the full text along with the metadata is delivered to the university repository Cornell Theses and Dissertations collection in eCommons within several hours of a submission being released to ProQuest for publication in PQDTG. Although the full text of many dissertations is available via ProQuest, coverage in ProQuest is not complete prior to The Cornell Theses and Dissertations collection in eCommons holds digital versions of many Cornell dissertations completed since about , as well as a few earlier ones.
Since , Cornell dissertations have been routinely added to eCommons. Before : Digital versions of dissertations and theses ETDs were not routinely deposited in eCommons. Most embargoed dissertations still have a record describing the dissertation in eCommons, but it is not possible to view the full text of the dissertation until the access restriction or embargo has expired. If access to a thesis is restricted in this way, users will see "Access to Document Restricted" under the document thumbnail image. Below this will be a field labeled "No Access Until," which indicates the date when the full text of the thesis will be accessible.
If the "No Access Until" field does not appear, the full text of the dissertation is available immediately. If there is a problem accessing a Cornell dissertation in eCommons after the embargo date has passed, contact Michael Engle at Olin Library Reference for assistance. CTL has an in-house database that is not publicly available where this information resides.
These dissertations have no records in either ProQuest Dissertations and Theses Global or in our Library catalog, although citations to them may appear elsewhere online. If a patron needs to read a dissertation and the full text is not yet available in Cornell Theses and Dissertations collection in eCommons , check the Library Catalog for a record with the location of the print copies.
If the print copy is so new that it is not yet been processed and there is no record in the catalog, the reference staff will contact Library Technical Services LTS to make it available.
