DMin Students

In addition to the services we provide all students, the Library is also happy to help DMin students working on their dissertations.

Finding Previous Dissertations

To find dissertations written by Hartford Seminary students, search the Library catalog.

Using the Advanced Search,

  • choose Show Search Options
  • in the Locations box, choose Theses
  • enter appropiate search terms for your project
  • click Search!

To find dissertations written by students at other institutions, begin your search in RIM: Research in Ministry

Some tips for using RIM:

  • On the first page, you must click Enter RIM
  • Once you have entered your search terms and clicked Search, you must click Display Search Results in order to see the results
  • From the results list, click the Full button next to each record to see the details and abstract

Once you find some appropriate dissertations in RIM, look for electronic copies for purchase via TREN or Dissertation Express:

  • Copies from TREN are less expensive
  • Try searching TREN several ways – by author’s name or partial title – before giving up

If you cannot find it in either of these sources, contact us for assistance.
