Question: What value lies in using dissertations, especially when they can sometimes be so hard to track down?
Answer: Dissertations and theses offer the latest research from graduate students, identifying trends in the field.
As research tools, they are invaluable for their extensive bibliographies.
Do a Keyword search using the following format:
"temple university theses" [your keyword(s) here]
Examples: "temple university theses" philosophy // "temple university theses" baseball
Note: a search using the phrase "temple university theses" will find both Masters theses and PhD dissertations
Note: While the library should hold all PhD dissertations, it does not hold all Masters theses
