Searching for Undergrad Dissertations in the Library

Lots of students are looking for past dissertations in the Library at the moment (usually as a guide on how to prepare their own paper). Instead of rifling through boxes of past dissertations, find exactly where to look by searching for dissertations on the library catalogue.
Using the 'Advanced catalogue search', type 'dissertation' as a keyword search, and also a keyword from the dissertation (such as 'ecology'). That will locate any dissertations with that title or subject held in the library, and give a shelf mark to identify it's location. If you have a recent edition of Macromedia Flash on your computer, you might like to look at this website for a screen capture demonstration.
