One of the best ways to see what other people in your discipline are reading is to see what they're referencing in their publications. OSU keeps a copy of every thesis and dissertation on ScholarsArchive@OSU. To see what's available in your discipline:
1. Find an OSU thesis or dissertation using ScholarsArchive@OSU
2. Focus on the document's literature review section, if it has one.
Use a subject-specific database (ERIC, PsychInfo) to search for theses and dissertations related to your to research. Look for the field or option to refine your search to just dissertations.
Many dissertations are now digitized, so try entering the title in Google to see if the manuscript is online. If not, you can request the item through interlibrary loan although not all institutions will lend their theses or dissertations.
Another option is to us PQDT Open. PQDT Open provides the full text of open access dissertations and theses free of charge.
