Interlibrary Loans: Welcome



ILL August 2018 Update

Due to transitioning to our new Library Management System, ALMA, our users will not be able to make ILL requests for items held at other universities from 10 - 30 August 2018.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused by this. Thank you.

Featured Resource: EThOS



British Library at St. Pancras


EThOS is the Electronic Thesis Online Service, a British Library initiative, which provides  access to UK doctoral theses online. Many UK theses are now being made available online via the EThOS service which allows you to:

  • search over 400,000+ theses records,
  • freely download the full-text of UK digitised theses,
  • order a download of theses from participating institutions.

Anyone who wishes to view a UK thesis must first register for the service. If the thesis is already digitised, you will be able to order then download it; if not, you can request it via EThOS and you will be advised by the British Library about its availability.  For help in using EThOS see the British Library’s online guide.

ProQuest Dissertations & Theses Database includes nearly 3 million searchable citations to dissertation and theses from around the world from 1743 to the present day together with over 1 million full-text dissertations that are available for download in PDF format. See Theses and Dissertations for further information on other relevant resources.
