New Link to full text version of Dissertation Abstracts@CIC Institutions
We were able to join with the Twin Cities in subscribing to Dissertation Abstracts@CIC Institutuions - This is a subset of the Dissertation Abstracts database which has links the complete text of recent thesis from the University of Minnesota and other large research universities that belong to the CIC cooperative (University of Michigan, Ohio State University, Indiana University, University of Chicago, University of Wisconsin, University of Iowa, Pennsylvania State University, Michigan State University and others). The text is available for download in .pdf format.
