Using BobCat to Find NYU Dissertations
If you already know the author or the title of the dissertation, you can search BobCat with that information to locate our copy and either recall it from offsite storage or find it in the Microforms Center. For those wishing to search BobCat for dissertations on certain subjects, perform an Advanced Search using the words "Dissertation" AND "[desired subject]."
Please note: NYU dissertations in the Proquest Dissertations & Global Theses database are indexed in BobCat regardless of whether or not they have been embargoed. Just because a dissertation record appears in BobCat does not mean that it is available in full-text.
