The first place to check is ProQuest's Dissertations & Theses Global, a database that provides online access to PhD dissertations and Master's theses back to 1997. You can access this database through Database Finder on the Libraries' homepage after logging in with your Directory ID and password. 

If the thesis is not available from ProQuest, it may be found in an institutional or other digital repository. In this case, try checking the University of Alberta's ERA: Education and Research Archive and Theses Canada

If there is not an online copy of this thesis that is freely accessible, other options include requesting a print copy through Interlibrary Loan or purchasing a copy from UMI's Dissertation Express.

  1. The university seems to no longer carry a subscription to Pro Quest's Dissertations & Full Text. This database does not appear in the selection of available databases anymore.

  2. Actually we now subscribe to an upgraded version of it, ProQuest's Dissertations & Theses Global. I'll update my original answer accordingly.
