A guide with step-by-step instructions on using the catalogue to find books and other material.
Once you click on a result, the item record provides you with many details of the thesis/dissertation including:
Author, place of publication, copyright information (all very useful for your bibliography).
Location (LOC) indicates which library the thesis is located in.
Call Number indicates the physical location assigned to a print copy of a thesis.
To examine a thesis that is only available in print form, please visit the University Archives and Special Collections on the third floor of the Murray Library and the staff will retrieve the thesis for you to examine. Theses must be examined only in the Special Collections reading room. Please be prepared to wait while the staff retrieves the thesis, or alternatively, request the thesis in advance by calling Special Collections at 966-6029 or emailing Special Collections at: email@example.com
If the thesis is available as an e-thesis you will see the phrase "Electronic Thesis" rather than a location and call number. You can click on "Connect to view the document" to open the thesis itself in a new window.
Use the catalogue search box to find theses. Narrow your search by selecting Theses Collection in the second drop down box.
