Use the advanced tab of the library catalog to search for dissertations.  All dissertations are listed as Thesis in the NMSU catalog.  The best way is to search by the title or author.

However, if you're unsure of the title or author, or if you would like to browse all the dissertations on a specific topic, you can combine a keyword search with the Title keyword "Thesis Ph."  This separates out the Ph.D. dissertations from the Master's level theses.  For Doctor of Education dissertations, substitute "Ed" for the "Ph" in your search terms.

For example, if you want to browse dissertations on education, search "Thesis Ph" AND "education" as shown below.  

NOTE:  If you only want items from NMSU, combine "New Mexico State University" with your other search terms using "AND."
