Dissertations and Theses database - now Full-Text

Our subscription to the Proquest Dissertations and Theses (PQDT) database has been upgraded to the full-text version, for 2012.  Until now, we had access to 24-page previews only. 

ProQuest Dissertations and Theses with Full Text is a comprehensive collection of international dissertations and theses.

It includes over 1.2 million full text dissertations that you can download in PDF form. PQDT offers the full text for most of the dissertations added since 1997, and also for many older theses. More than 70,000 new full-text dissertations are added every year.

As well as providing full-text, PQDT also includes 2.7 million searchable citations to international dissertations and theses, from 1861 to the present day, so is an excellent finding tool for relevant theses.

N.B: you also have access to the Index to Theses database which provides a comprehensive list of higher degree theses accepted by UK and Irish Universities, since 1716.

Over 16,000 new theses are added annually, and Index to Theses also provides links to over 50,000 full text theses freely available from University repositories, or from the British Library's EThOS online theses site
