Comprehensive dissertation index (Open Library)

The database includes bibliographic citations for materials ranging from the first U.S. dissertation, accepted in 1861, to those accepted as recently as last semester. Citations for dissertations published from 1980 forward also include 350-word abstracts written by the author. Citations for master's theses from 1988 forward include 150-word abstracts. The full text of more than one million of these titles is available in paper and microform formats. Institutional subscribers to ProQuest Digital Dissertations receive on-line access to the complete file of dissertations in digital format starting with titles published from 1997 forward.
This service replaces DISSERTATION ABSTRACTS/COMPREHENSIVE DISSERTATION INDEX for all intents and purposes.

Nevertheless, please consider: Comprehensive Dissertation Index (CDI) cumulates many earlier dissertation lists but must be used carefully. It is not comprehensive, as the title suggests, and it did not correct errors from the lists on which it is based.
