New Database - EThOS (British Dissertations)

EThOS: Electronic Theses Online Service provides a 'single point of access' where researchers the world over can access theses produced by UK Higher Education. EThOS makes UK theses (e and paper based) available via a 'one-stop-shop' by harvesting e-theses from institutional repositories and digitizing paper theses on-demand from researchers. The British Library, in collaboration with many UK universities and other associations, aims to provide theses produced by the UK higher education system on an open access model to all researchers.
