Using doctoral theses in your research: a guide to EThOS

Library Shelves 2 by Steve Harris CC BY-NC 2.0EThOS ( is the national database for PhD theses, managed by the British Library. It’s a great resource for researchers, with over 100,000 UK theses freely available to download and use for your own research, and another 200,000 available to search and scan on demand.

The British Library have recently sent round notification of a free webinar to find out more about EThOS:

“Join us for a free webinar to learn how EThOS works. Find out how to search for and download theses, and what to do if a thesis isn’t available. If you’re a PhD student, find out what will happen to your thesis once it’s completed. We’ll also explain how EThOS works with UK universities to support the whole research cycle, making the theses more visible and available for new researchers to use and build on.

This webinar is aimed at researchers, students, librarians and anyone who is interested in finding and using PhD theses.

Host: Sara Gould, Development Manager at the British Library, who manages the EThOS service. Sara will answer questions after the webinar.
