How can non-affiliated users who need dissertations from NRLF (308t) that are not in the Digital Dissertations database go about getting access to the original dissertation?

Original printed Berkeley dissertations [308t] are restricted, building-use-only items, so patrons need to come to the Main Circulation Desk and request them. The item arrives the next working day at 4pm and can be viewed or scanned in the building.  This is a two day procedure.

They cannot be viewed at NRLF, because they are restricted to Main Library use only.

Patrons who only plan to be on campus for one day can contact the Main Circulation supervisor 510-643-4431 a day in advance to request the dissertation be brought to campus.
