CRL works with British Library on thesis access

Share this on social media:

Center for Research Libraries (CRL) is working with the British Library to provide web access to dissertations and theses through the EThOS database.

'This joint effort by CRL and the British Library will bring the products of important graduate research at a number of distinguished UK universities within reach for scholars in North America and worldwide,' commented CRL president Bernard Reilly.

CRL has sponsored the digitisation of 400 dissertations, about half of which focus on the Middle East, the Persian Gulf region and/or Islam. The remaining titles are high-use items on a  number of topics. CRL’s sponsorship will make this body of scholarship accessible to the thousands of graduate and postgraduate researchers in the CRL community.

CRL and the British Library have a history of working together in newspaper and archives preservation.
