The Networked Digital Library of Theses and Dissertations (NDLTD) is a group effort of several databases to make dissertation and thesis work available for research. On their website (link above) there are two main search engines for exploring their databases.
Of the two engines, we would recommend SCIRUS ETD because it has more specific search possibilities and a list of 17 subject categories. Clicking on an article will take you to the database or university web page where you should find a link saying “full-text” or “download.”
OCLC has a similar system called OAISTER that SAU has access to. To view the items, click on the title and find the “Details” section. In that section, by “Access,” there will be a link to the site where the thesis or dissertation can be viewed. Look for links with “full-text” or “access” to find the link in the database’s page.
On the NDLTD site there are also links to some databases from foreign colleges. English articles can be found in ADT (Australiasian Digital Theses Program), DART-Europe E-theses Portal, DiVA (Scandanavia), EThOS (United Kingdom), NARCIS (Netherlands), National ETD Portal (South Africa), and Theses Canada. There is also a German database (Deusche National Bibliothek) which has English articles, but the web page is in German. To see a translated view click here.
