EThOS - (Electronic Theses Online)

"The British Library and the Center for Research Libraries (CRL) in the US are making available 400 doctoral theses focusing on the Middle East, Islamic studies and related subjects online.

The theses - which represent a wealth of UK postgraduate research into politics, culture and society in the Islamic world - can now be downloaded for free by scholars worldwide via the British Library's EThOS (Electronic Theses Online) service.

CRL is a consortium of some 250 research libraries in the US and Canada. It has sponsored the digitisation of hundreds of theses identified as being of special interest and value in the field of Islamic studies to make them available to academics worldwide.

EThOS is a partnership between the British Library, the Higher Education sector and JISC, and it supplies electronic versions of theses published by 111 UK universities. The digitisation of paper theses is funded by the partner universities and the service administered by the library.
