Library Theses collection

The University Library receives electronic and print copies of theses submitted for higher research degrees awarded by the University of Strathclyde.

Electronic copies of theses can be accessed via STAX. You can also search for print and electronic copies of theses in our main library catalogue, SUPrimo.

Print copies are kept under controlled access, not on the open shelves, but these are available on request during normal working hours. One print copy of each thesis is restricted to reference use in the Library. If a second copy is available, this may be borrowed for a six week period.

Taught Postgraduate Theses & Honours Dissertations

Please note that theses and dissertations undertaken as part of a taught postgraduate or undergraduate degree programme are not held in the Library and you need to contact the department/s concerned directly, to arrange consultation. The only exception to this is a selection of MBA, MBM, MIM or BITS projects which are available from the Short Loan Collection on Level 3.

Viewing & requesting a thesis

Find details of the thesis by searching on SUPrimo. Click on the title or Electronic resource link to view the full thesis.

To obtain print theses, members of the Library can use the 'Reserve my book' tab, select the copy you want and click on the Store Lending button.

Non-members may submit a request to consult a thesis by email.
