    OK, all you scholarly researchers out there, I have a research question. Maybe I should already know this, but I don't.

    I need to find and read a PhD dissertation. I seem to remember being told that they are available from some online research sources, but I don't know where they are or how to use them. How do I find a PhD dissertation?

    The one I'm looking for is "Aquinas on Romans 9-11" by Steven C. Boguslawski, from Yale.

    Can anyone tell me how to find this?

    Thanks in advance

    Dissertation


    The last I knew the service where theses are archived is called TREN, but I do not remember what the acronym stands for. You might try a Google search on it. You might also contact the library of a nearby college or university. I am sure they could tell you how to access the information for which you are looking.

    You could try to get it through ILL, but libraries typically won't loan bound dissertations to you, but besides Yale, the University of Virginia, and Saint Johns Seminary have it so you can contact them for info. If you REALLY need it, you can also contact UMI for a copy but it'll cost money.

    However, you're in luck. He has contributed to this book, which you should be able to get via ILL from many places. My suspicion is the fruit of his dissertation is in his contribution to this book. Besides being published like this (by Brazos) is an indication that his argument is at least worth something, but you'll have to check it out to see for sure.

    (I got this from a 5 second search on worldcat; with a name like that worldcat is the first search you should do)

    dissertations

    TREN is the Theological Research and Exchange Network. Robert Jones is the director. If he doesn't have it, he can likely tell you how you can get it. I've spoken to him before. He's a nice guy.

    Send me a message with your Email address and I will send you a screen shot in jpeg format. The file is 76 KB. I cannot upload it on BB because the file is too large.
