First, verify that the thesis or dissertation is not available through interlibrary loan. Some institutions do not lend their theses and dissertations.
You will need to know
- 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.
