Using doctoral theses in your research – webinar repeated

Sara Gould of the British Library is repeating last year’s webinar on using doctoral theses in research. She writes:

“Please join us for an EThOS webinar to be held on Thursday 13 February 2014, at 15:00 GMT. This will be a repeat of the session we held on 10 December which saw 385 attendees and lots of requests to hold another for colleagues who were unable to join us then.

Title: Using doctoral theses in your research: a guide to EThOS.

Northampton theses

EThOS ( is the national database for PhD theses, managed by the British Library. It’s a fantastic 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.

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.

Host: Sara Gould, Development Manager at the British Library, who manages the EThOS service, and Melissa Byrd, who deals with marketing for Higher Education.
