Why select this database?

This database provides fast and convenient access to the dissertations and theses available in OCLC member libraries. Many theses are available electronically, at no charge, directly from the publishing institution.

Subjects included

All dissertations, theses, and published material based on theses cataloged by OCLC members, on all subjects.

Database details

Index labels and search examples.

Use a colon after an index label (for example, au:) when you are not certain of your search terms. Use an equal sign after an index label (au=) for an exact match search. You can search with an index label from any search screen. The information you type overrides any default menu selections. The following examples show sample rather than actual searches.

Index use and structure

FirstSearch Indexes and USE and STRUCTURE attributes used to access them:

Author Searches

Subject heading searches*, title searches, classification numbers and specific searches, record display information, marc fields.

The MARC records returned from this database will be the OCLC-MARC records as they were input into the system.

This database can have any valid MARC tag in it. Besides the valid MARC tags, the following FirstSearch Locally Defined fields also exist:

Restrictors

The following restrictors should be combined with search strings in WorldCat (using the Boolean operators AND or NOT) in cases where the search results would otherwise be too large and unmanageable.

Refine your results by adding these labels

¹ Use these limits only in combination with another search statement. ² Valid values for the language limiter include both the MARC three-letter language code and the english spelling of a language. For example, Spanish can be searched using ln=spa or ln=spanish . ³ For a list of library symbols, visit the Directory of OCLC members .   4 A number of specific searches are available with the material type index can make an excellent method for limiting records. For a complete list of material type indexes see Material types .   5 For a complete list of codes for the Number of Libraries index, see Number of library holdings .

Search results in the WorldCat database can be sorted by Author (1003) and Title (4).

General punctuation rules

Omit accent marks and diacritics such as ¨ (umlaut) and ¸ (cedilla). Special characters should be replaced by a Romanized form of the character, such as u for hooked u and ss for ß (eszett).

Phrase indexes have no stopwords.

Some indexes will have exceptions to the list of stopwords. These differences are:

  • Author, Corporate and Conference Name, and Personal Names have no stopwords.
  • Place of Publication, Subjects, Geographic Coverage will not have the following stopwords: an, as, at, be, by, if, in, is, it, on, or, so, to.
  • Access Method has the stopwords above as well as http and https as stopwords.  

Searching tips

Keyword search.

The Keyword index for WorldCat uses attribute number 1016. The Keyword search finds information in the author, title, subject, notes, ISBN, year, year 2 and a few fields specific to the keyword search (034/a,b,d,e,f,g, 052/a,b, 255/a,b,c,d,e).

The Year data is indexed exactly as those indexes index the 008 data (see below). The ISBN is indexed as the data is indexed, without hyphens. However, any keyword search term that meets the characteristics of an ISBN and is entered with hyphens will be automatically concatenated by the search processor.

A geographic field found only in the keyword indexes is 052/a,b. This is a field useful to map catalogers. The 052/a field is indexed alone. Any records containing 052/b also indexes as 052/a concatenated together with 052/b without spaces, as a single word. So, a record with 052 #a 1234 #b P4 #b C2 is searchable as 1234, 1234p4, and 1234c2.

Subject Indexes

The Subject searches have many options. The types of data have been broken down to allow specific searches, such as Geographic Coverage (58) and Genre/form (5655), Named Person (1009), Named Corporation (5610) and Named Conference (5611). The Descriptor search (5650) includes only topical information.

Library Holdings Group

The library holdings group (use attribute 5848) limits a search by the most widely held items. Try using a rangeable search, such as 08, which would include all items held by 100 libraries or more. Different types of material will have different high-end levels for searching. If you searching for highly technical material, 50 libraries holding the item would be a large number. However, serial records and very popular works can be found in the rare "most held" group—31.  

Access Method/Internet Resources

The most direct search of internet resources is the Access Method search (use 5856) which searches the URLs in some WorldCat records. The characters between the punctuation in the URL are the "words" that are searched for. For example, http://www.oclc.org is searched by the "words" www, OCLC, and org. The most distinct term in the string is the most useful on which to search. All the stopwords apply to this index, plus two additional stopwords, "http" and "https".  

Known number indexes

ISBNs (use 7) remove and concatenate all punctuation including hyphens. However, a search can be entered with hyphens and get the appropriate ISBN records. Consider searching the ISBN using the Standard Number index (use 1007) instead of the ISBN only (use 7) index. The index with use 7 includes only data found in the 022 field, while the ISBNs for the electronic item are sometimes included in the 776/z field which is indexed with Standard Number (use 1007). To have all ISBNs included in the index use the Standard Number index. For both of these indexes, ISBNs can be successfully searched with or without hyphens.

LCCN or Library of Congress Control Numbers (use 9) have the numbers indexed without the hyphen. A user can search with the hyphen added or with the zero fill characters that is also used to store the number. So for example, sn92-1234 is indexed as sn921234 and 921234 and can be searched as 92-1234 or 92001234 or sn92-1234 or sn92001234.

The standard number index (use 1007) has ISBNs, ISSNs, LCCNs, and many other standard numbers. For all of these, all punctuation is removed and concatenated. For the LCCNs, only the stored number with the zeros is retained. Further, if there is an alphabetic prefix with three letters it is attached to the number. If there is an alphabetic prefix of one or two letters, it is not attached.  

Update Index

The update index (1012) gives the date on the MARC record as the date last updated in the OCLC WorldCat Cataloging System in the format YYYYMMDD. Since FirstSearch is a day or two behind the cataloging system, please take that into account. So, if a user searched on August 31, 2000 and wanted to retrieve only new or changed records a month later (October 1, 2000) the user would AND the previous search with the update index using "200009*". However, while this would retrieve all of September, to be complete the search "2000083*" would also need to be included.

Rostov-on-Don, Cossacks, Russia, conflict, war, WW2, Anti-Semitism

The purpose of this thesis is to briefly discuss the history of Rostov-on-Don and the surrounding region. Rostov-on-Don is a city that was established in 1749, and received its name from the fortress, which was named after Saint Dmitry of Rostov that stands where the city is today. There were a number of key developments before the establishment of Rostov-on-Don, including the birth of the Don Cossacks as well as the founding of other key cities in the region. Additionally, since the founding of Rostov-on-Don, the region has had a small and thriving Jewish community, which was able to exist despite anti-Semitic sentiments held by many in the region, especially by the Don Cossacks. Nevertheless, in the time leading up to the birth of the USSR, violence against Jews increased dramatically in the region. With the outbreak of Russian Civil War, following the Russian Revolution, the Rostov region played a decisive role, since it remained a White Army stronghold throughout most of the conflict. During the Civil War, anti-Semitism was prevalent and the Jews living in the Rostov region were treated horrifically by both the White Army as well as the Red Army. In 1920, the White Army was forced to give up Rostov-on-Don and the surrounding region to the Bolsheviks, ushering in an age of communist rule. The period following the Civil War was rife with construction and development in the Rostov region. New factories, rapid industrialization, and developments in the region’s educational system were the norm. Serving as a symbol of this industrialization, was the founding of Rostselmash, which was one of the largest factories specializing in farm equipment in the Soviet Union, in 1929 near Rostov-on-Don . Additionally, despite growing anti-Semitism amongst the Don Cossacks, who felt that both the Jews and the Communists were responsible for their misfortunes, there was a strong Jewish presence in Rostov-on-Don, which was composed of approximately 50,000 Jews in early 1941. Unfortunately, this only added to the tragedy that befell the region, when the Nazis took Rostov-on-Don for a week in November 1941, and then re-captured it in July 1942. During this time, it is believed that the majority of Rostov’s Jewish population was exterminated. It should also be noted that many Don Cossacks collaborated with the Nazis during the occupation. However, following the Nazi’s defeat at the Battle of Stalingrad, Rostov-on-Don was liberated by the Red Army on February 14th 1943. At this time the city and the region were in shambles, which warranted a large-scale reconstruction effort. Following the end of the Nazi occupation, reconstruction efforts began in the Rostov region. Although the demands from the Kremlin were to exceed pre-war production levels within a short period of time, it took the region decades to recover. In addition, it should be noted that most of Rostov-on-Don’s residential buildings were rendered uninhabitable due to the years of war in the region. Compounding the situation was the fact that crime skyrocketed. Nevertheless, the Rostov region was able to recover to the point where it became one of the most vital industrial areas of the Soviet Union. When the USSR began to collapse, the Don Cossacks were able to recover much of their culture, which had been buried during the Soviet period. And, despite the fact that there is still anti-Semitism in the Rostov region, there is currently a strong Jewish community in Rostov. Moreover, due to the area’s fascinating history, Rostov-on-Don and the Rostov Oblast require much future study, which will provide additional insights into the Russian soul.

Coat of arms

Rostov-on-Don is the largest city in South Russia and the centre of Russia's Southern Federal District. Although officially known as Rostov-on-Don to distinguish it from the ancient city of Rostov , in speech it is usually just called Rostov as the bigger of the two Rostovs (the orginal Rostov is confusingly then often called Rostov-Veliky). Rostov-on-Don is closely associated with the Cossacks and is also referred to as the 'Gateway to the Caucasus'. In 2018 the city served as a FIFA World Cup venue.

Searching tips

Keyword search.

The Keyword index for WorldCat uses attribute number 1016. The Keyword search finds information in the author, title, subject, notes, ISBN, year, year 2 and a few fields specific to the keyword search (034/a,b,d,e,f,g, 052/a,b, 255/a,b,c,d,e).

The Year data is indexed exactly as those indexes index the 008 data (see below). The ISBN is indexed as the data is indexed, without hyphens. However, any keyword search term that meets the characteristics of an ISBN and is entered with hyphens will be automatically concatenated by the search processor.

A geographic field found only in the keyword indexes is 052/a,b. This is a field useful to map catalogers. The 052/a field is indexed alone. Any records containing 052/b also indexes as 052/a concatenated together with 052/b without spaces, as a single word. So, a record with 052 #a 1234 #b P4 #b C2 is searchable as 1234, 1234p4, and 1234c2.

Subject Indexes

The Subject searches have many options. The types of data have been broken down to allow specific searches, such as Geographic Coverage (58) and Genre/form (5655), Named Person (1009), Named Corporation (5610) and Named Conference (5611). The Descriptor search (5650) includes only topical information.

Library Holdings Group

The library holdings group (use attribute 5848) limits a search by the most widely held items. Try using a rangeable search, such as 08, which would include all items held by 100 libraries or more. Different types of material will have different high-end levels for searching. If you searching for highly technical material, 50 libraries holding the item would be a large number. However, serial records and very popular works can be found in the rare "most held" group—31.  

Access Method/Internet Resources

The most direct search of internet resources is the Access Method search (use 5856) which searches the URLs in some WorldCat records. The characters between the punctuation in the URL are the "words" that are searched for. For example, http://www.oclc.org is searched by the "words" www, OCLC, and org. The most distinct term in the string is the most useful on which to search. All the stopwords apply to this index, plus two additional stopwords, "http" and "https".  

Known number indexes

ISBNs (use 7) remove and concatenate all punctuation including hyphens. However, a search can be entered with hyphens and get the appropriate ISBN records. Consider searching the ISBN using the Standard Number index (use 1007) instead of the ISBN only (use 7) index. The index with use 7 includes only data found in the 022 field, while the ISBNs for the electronic item are sometimes included in the 776/z field which is indexed with Standard Number (use 1007). To have all ISBNs included in the index use the Standard Number index. For both of these indexes, ISBNs can be successfully searched with or without hyphens.

LCCN or Library of Congress Control Numbers (use 9) have the numbers indexed without the hyphen. A user can search with the hyphen added or with the zero fill characters that is also used to store the number. So for example, sn92-1234 is indexed as sn921234 and 921234 and can be searched as 92-1234 or 92001234 or sn92-1234 or sn92001234.

The standard number index (use 1007) has ISBNs, ISSNs, LCCNs, and many other standard numbers. For all of these, all punctuation is removed and concatenated. For the LCCNs, only the stored number with the zeros is retained. Further, if there is an alphabetic prefix with three letters it is attached to the number. If there is an alphabetic prefix of one or two letters, it is not attached.  

Update Index

The update index (1012) gives the date on the MARC record as the date last updated in the OCLC WorldCat Cataloging System in the format YYYYMMDD. Since FirstSearch is a day or two behind the cataloging system, please take that into account. So, if a user searched on August 31, 2000 and wanted to retrieve only new or changed records a month later (October 1, 2000) the user would AND the previous search with the update index using "200009*". However, while this would retrieve all of September, to be complete the search "2000083*" would also need to be included.

Southern Federal District, Russia

Southern federal district - overview.

The Southern Federal District is a federal district of the Russian Federation located in the south of its European part, in the lower reaches of the Volga River, north of the Greater Caucasus Range. The city of Rostov-on-Don is the administrative center of the district. The main sea resorts of Russia (Sochi, Anapa, Gelendzhik) are located on the territory of this federal district.

The population of the Southern Federal District is about 14,086,000 (2016), the area - 420,876 sq. km.

South district map, Russia

Southern federal district - features.

The federal district under the name of the North Caucasian Federal District was formed by the decree of the Russian President on May 13, 2000. On June 21, 2000, it was renamed the Southern Federal District. Initially, this federal district included the republics of the North Caucasus and the Stavropol Krai, which, in 2010, became parts of a separate North Caucasian Federal District.

In 2016, the Crimea and the city of Sevastopol were included in the Southern Federal District. Today, the Crimea is the object of territorial disagreements between Russia, de facto controlling this territory since March 2014, and Ukraine. Most of the UN member states continue to consider the entire Crimea as part of Ukraine.

In the west, the Southern Federal District borders Ukraine, in the east - Kazakhstan. In the east, it is also washed by the Caspian Sea, in the west - by the Azov Sea and the Black Sea.

South of Russia is characterized by a variety of landscapes (mixed, coniferous, deciduous forests, steppes, subalpine meadows). The average temperature in January is minus 4.4 degrees Celsius, in July - plus 24.6 degrees Celsius.

The Southern Federal District has significant reserves of thermal and mineral waters, tungsten, coal, oil on the shelf of the Caspian Sea.

The main branches of the local economy are extraction and processing of thermal and mineral waters, mining industry, tourism, agriculture, production of building materials.
