The Health Sciences Library has copies of the theses and dissertations completed in Health Affairs departments.Some dissertations and theses are also located in the Library Service Center and can be requested through the Carolina BLU Campus Delivery Service.The North Carolina Collection in Wilson Library has paper copies of MOST UNC Chapel Hill theses and dissertations, including many of those from Health Affairs, and also the only copies of some pre-1930 dissertations and theses.
Although most dissertations are in the online catalog, dissertations before 1964 have no subject headings.
Searching for key words in the titles will help get at "subjects" for these items. Be creative with appropriate key words, synonyms, and variants as well.
They can be found using the card catalog located in that collection or the online catalog.
They do not have subject headings unless they are about North Carolina. Some departmental libraries also have copies but these are also non-circulating.
For copies of papers completed since 1994, contact the Manager of the Master of Public Administration Program (Knapp-Sanders Bldg., CB# 3330, Chapel Hill, NC 27599-3330, Phone: 919-966-5381, Fax: 919-962-0654, Email Contact Form).
UNC-Chapel Hill Master's Paper Collection Full-text copies of master's papers can be found: Undergraduate Honors Theses (through 2012) are in the North Carolina Collection.
If you do search for dissertations in the online catalog, you should add "and north carolina" to try and weed out dissertations from other schools, but this can lead to false drops and omissions.
Finding Theses While some theses may be found in Dissertations & Theses, thesis coverage is not nearly as comprehensive as dissertation coverage in that database. If searching for a known author or title, searching the online catalog is the most efficient way to search.
Most UNC-Chapel Hill theses and dissertations can be found in the online catalog.
The Carolina Digital Repository also provides access to digital copies of theses and dissertations completed at UNC-Chapel Hill.
