Literature Reviews, Master's Theses and Dissertations

For NYMC literature reviews, master's theses and dissertations:

There are 2 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. 

Note: Theses cannot be removed from the library, but may be scanned or copied. Theses are shelved in closed stacks. To see print copies, provide author and title information at the Access Services Desk or call (914) 594-4200 to arrange to email this information ahead of time, so that theses will be waiting for you.
