UNC Libraries do not routinely buy dissertations from other schools, but if we have purchased a dissertation it will appear in the online catalog.
If we do not have a dissertation or thesis, usually we can borrow it. See the Borrowing & Purchasing page for more information on making an interlibrary loan request.
Master's Thesis coverage is not nearly as comprehensive as dissertation coverage in the databases below. If the home institution for a MA thesis is known, then a catalog search of that institution's catalog may provide a record of the thesis, and then it may be available for loan through Interlibrary Borrowing.
Foreign dissertations are trickier to identify, but there are a variety of national listings.
