Theses and dissertations are an important primary source of information on a topic. Universities are providing digitised versions online. Older theses may only be available as a print version. They are considered to be ‘unpublished’ even though many are now accessible online.
The chief source of theses and dissertations in the Library’s collection is Dissertations & Theses Full Text database from ProQuest. This database includes over 2 million citations from around the world primarily North America and Europe.
