Getting Started: Information Research Tips

Introductory help in learning how to identify, locate, evaluate, and use information effectively and ethically for research assignments.


The UCLA Library provides access to the full-text of many dissertations through our subscription to ProQuest Dissertations & Theses. The link to full-text does not always appear in the UCLA Library Catalog or on the  page. If you find a reference to a dissertation (often in an article database), the best strategy is to go to the ProQuest Dissertations & Theses website and search for the Document title. If the full-text is available, there will be a  link to click on.
