New Electronic Theses Online Service (EThOS) available from the British Library

EThOS offers free access to the full text of UK theses, allowing researchers to tap into this rich and vast body of knowledge.

Delivered through a single web interface, the service includes theses stored electronically by the British Library, as well as those held by other universities, and will digitise theses on demand as required by researchers.

What does the new service offer?

  • Easy to use ordering system
  • Paper theses digitised on-demand
  • An online tracking system for checking the status of requests
  • Immediate download available for theses already digitised
  • Credit card payment only (please note it may be possible for your own library to meet some or all of the cost of obtaining a thesis in this way - ask your librarian for help)
