According to the Encyclopedia Britannica, a dissertation, also called a thesis, is "an extended usually written treatment of a subject; specifically : one submitted for a doctorate."

A dissertation may provide an additional point of view to add to your research paper. The Lovejoy Library holds copies of dissertations on the 2nd floor. You may also use Dissertation Abstracts Online to locate abstracts and citations of 1.8 million dissertations and theses.
