If we do not have a particular book, journal article or conference proceeding then we can usually obtain it from the British Library. This is called an 'Inter Library Loan' or ILL.
There is currently no charge to you for this service but please bear in mind that it is an expensive service to maintain and so please only request items essential to your research.
Requests for material that we have in stock on the shelves or that are in our online collections will not be fulfilled.
*** Please *** check Primo before submitting a request to confirm that the item you request is not in stock.
Dissertations are indexed at title level in Primo along with other resources. However, searching the digital dissertations platform directly allows for a deeper search of the full text. Link here: Masters Dissertations *LOG IN TO SEARCH AND ACCESS FULL CONTENT*
The library hosts dissertations released by faculties. Not all are released to the library. There is no browseable index by programme name. Try using keywords in speech to identify dissertations from your programme.
Also, some Masters dissertations can be subject to embargoes on grounds of confidentiality or other ethical reasons. There is no University wide policy for submission of copies of Masters dissertations and so there are not complete holdings for every Masters programme. Enquiries should be directed to academic programme staff if examples cannot be found.
The British Library has set up EThOS, a service which enables individuals to register online at http://ethos.bl.uk and access UK PhD theses. EThOS currently provides details of more than 250,000 theses, many of which are available electronically and can be downloaded from EThOS.
View the presentation below or see the article on Self Help for information on how to use EThOS.
