Evil Proquest and Dissertations
It's not that I thought my dissertation was the best thing in the world. But I kinda thought that, considering how many people are now working on related topics, that someone might have looked at it. So I went to UMI -- the place where I had to send a copy of my diss when I finished it, the people who LOST my diss for a year, so that, when I tried to order a copy for my advisor, it wasn't frakkin' there! Today, I saw a post at Early Modern Notes about people looking at Sharon's diss, so I went to UMI to check on mine. It is now behind a huge ProQuest firewall. You can't even search for the bugger without a subscription to Proquest, it seems. WTF?????
Since SLAC doesn't have ProQuest, I can't find it. I'm so annoyed.
