EThOS

Tue, 17 Feb 2009

The British Library have just launched an online beta service supplying theses from UK Higher Education institutions. It has wide support from a lot of universities and contains PhD theses. I assume there are others as well but I have found that nugget of info yet. E-theses are automatically harvested from those university repositories that already have them, whilst others will be scanned from the Boston Spa centre. Nearly all electronic delivery methods are free (although this can depend upon the individual institution) and there are currently over 250K in the database. I've just ordered a dissertation so I will report again on the process, but on first glance this is hugely impressive and a vital resource for researchers.
