i have done several searches on google with different keywords but nothing.

i have been working side by side with the metallurgist at work for a bit now and the dude is awesome. his brain is filled with info. i am basically getting paid to get an education from the doc. i love it. he is an older gentleman and he loves to talk. he was a professor for 3 years. he said he loves to teach people at work all the time and they dont have any interest. i am all over it.
i want to rub shoulders with the doc as much as possible for as long as i can.
he has been giving me books to read at home and basically teaches me all the time we are working.

back to the question.
i know what his thesis is called and i know the school and the year. i really want to read it but i feel like a creeper asking him. just does not seem right.

if anyone knows of sites that archive things like this i would love to know.

this dude is a monster

Have you tried contacting the university in question and asking about their thesis policy?

I would just ask a person outright, I think it might be viewed as "more creepy" to go about the search undercover. I think the Doc would be flattered and your search might be concluded much more expeditiosly.

i thought about that too. i think it might go that way. i can ask him if i can read it but dont have to say i looked it up and couldnt find it.
i figured it would be creepy if i had to hack some # or do something shady to find it. i figured it is not creepy to search and if it is there read it. if it is out there in some sort of open to the public database then it seemed on the level.

You could check the Library of Congress. Check with the publisher. Check the school archive.

If you know the school you ought to be able to get it on Inter library Loan. Also, check the ProQuest database at a academic library, which has a section on dissertations, for the exact title and all. Your local public library ought to be able to get it for you.

Have you tried scholar.google.com? That will pull up academic papers at the beginning of the search results instead of buried in the middle. Ebscohost.com and infotrac.galegroup.com are also good search sources for academic papers, but you need a password from a member or a library to access them.

I use Dogpile.com

Using title, subject, author

I think they began to be put online by then.

Alternately, search the author and send him an email.

Have you already tried this site?

www.ndltd.org...

If you can't find it here then definitely try the author or ask for it via interlibrary loan at your local library.

THANKS. Good links to know about.

I used scholar google . . . found a citation for my Dissertation, which was before 1982.

I know there's also a site where those who want to upload or type in their dissertations that were before routine filing online--can do so.

I don't recall that link.

So if you get your hands on his thesis and read it, then what?

The "what" would be that you would want to talk to him about it even if to only acknowledge that you have read it. So the easiest way to read the work is to ask him if he can loan you a copy that way you are have opened the door to further communicating about it once you have access.

I may have access through my school. I can check online for you, just give me the title and author. You can PM me if you don't want to post it here.

It's a good point though. In all your conversations post reading, will you be able to act as if you hadn't read it? Especially if there are topics that might come up in those conversations? You might want to think about that.

Food for thought and all that.
