I am interested in finding a print copy of a Brock thesis. Do they exist, and how do I find them?  

Most Brock theses are available electronically through the Digital Repository. A few are available in print, including: 

Graduate theses available in print
If the author opted-out of the Brock University Graduate Theses Digitization Project, the Library kept one print copy of those theses. Masters' theses are shelved in the Z9999 call number range on Floor 5.  Ph.D theses are shelved in the Z9999.5 call number range on Floor 5. All Masters theses are indexed and can be searched in the Brock University Digital Repository.

Masters of Education theses and projects
Master of Education theses and Masters of Education Projects are available in the Instructional Resource Centre (IRC) in the Faculty of Education. To find a specific print thesis, use the library catalogue to search by author or title.

Masters of Education theses can also be searched in the Brock University Digital Repository.
