How to do a Literature Review

Find Theses and Dissertations at This Library

The CSUS Theses Collection is located on the Lower Level and the call numbers are unique to this Library.  Each volume is filed by an alpha/numeric representation of the author's last name, which is the best way to find an an individual thesis.  Since most of us don't start out knowing a specific thesis exists, let alone who wrote it, we must rely on OneSearch to find them for us.  A separate Research Guide explains how to locate theses:  How to Find a CSUS Thesis Project or Dissertation

For most theses you will need to search OneSearch, however, beginning in Fall 2009 CSUS theses were submitted in electronic format and became part of the CSU wide ScholarWorks searchable database.  Click the Database tab to see links toScholarWorks and other databases.
