Conservatory students & faculty members may request dissertations not available electronically through Interlibrary Loan.

    Indexes theses and dissertations in music as well as articles in books and journals related to the study of music.

  • Doctoral Dissertations in Musicology

Requesting Dissertations

  • To request a CIM dissertation, submit a storage request at the Circulation desk (Robinson Music Library). Allow one day for retrieval. CIM Dissertations are for in-library use and may not be photocopied.

  • Interlibrary Loan. Dissertations are typically held by the libraries of the educational institutions where they were completed. Some libraries maintain microfilm copies of dissertations. Many libraries will lend a copy (print or microfilm) of a dissertation. The library has a microfilm reader/printer.
