The North Carolina Collection in Wilson Library has paper copies of ALL UNC Chapel Hill theses and dissertations, including those from Health Affairs, and also the only copies of some pre-1930 dissertations and theses. The NCC's copies do not circulate and are not in an area open for browsing. You can assume that the NCC will have a copy of a UNC Chapel Hill dissertation or thesis even if the catalogs do not reveal this.
Davis Library has circulating copies of many theses and dissertations completed at UNC Chapel Hill. The Health Sciences Library has copies of the theses and dissertations completed in Health Affairs departments. Some dissertations and theses are also located in the Library Service Center and can be requested through the Carolina BLU Campus Delivery Service. Most UNC Chapel Hill theses and dissertations can be found in the online catalog.
