Tertiary theses (degree theses, dissertations)

To search for theses, type in, under “Search”, “dipl” for degree theses and “diss” for dissertations. That advice holds whether you are searching in the catalogues of the Austrian National Library or in the Austrian Network Catalogue.

Particular details

In the “Catalogue 1930 – 1991” it is better to use the the search concept “diplomarbeit” instead of the identification code “dipl”.

In the “Catalogue from 1992 on” you can choose in “Advanced search” as type of publication “Hochschulschriften”.

When you get too many results, you can use the search option “Refine search question” to type in additional search items.
