Q. How do I locate NYMC dissertations, theses or Master's literature reviews?
There are 3 ways to access NYMC dissertations, Master’s theses or literature reviews:
1) Use the library catalog, NYMCat, linked from the library homepage. Select Advanced Search. Change the index labeled “Keyword” to “Subject”. Type "dissertations, academic" in the search box.
In the second search box type “new york medical college”.
To narrow results further you can try using the name of the school or department in a third search box, but keep in mind that these names have changed over the years and not all theses are indexed with them. You may also add a topic search term, either as a subject search or the default keyword search.
Electronic Theses: Some theses are available electronically. To search for these only, use "dissertations, electronic" as the subject phrase in step 1.
2) The Reference collection holds binders of thesis title pages that you may browse. The title page gives the title and author name. All theses are shelved in the library in alphabetical order by author last name.
3) Some people find it worthwhile to browse the thesis shelves to see what catches their eye.
Note: Theses cannot be removed from the library, but may be scanned or copied.
