Document Supply service
Staff and students can borrow books and other resources from the British Library (and other university libraries) via the Document Supply service.
Obtaining UK post-doctoral theses (all researchers)
Post-doctoral theses must be requested via Ethos, the British Library's digital repository website. Each researcher must first register individually with Ethos in order to make requests through the site. (Note that MA/MSc theses are excluded from the Document Supply service.)
The Ethos page provides more information.
Each university also has its own academic research repository, which will include some PhD theses. Each repository is searchable but each has different levels of functionality, eg view only etc.
The repositories for each university are:
- GALA - University of Greenwich;
- KAR - University of Kent (also searchable via LibrarySearch); and
- CReaTE - Canterbury Christ Church University (also searchable via LibrarySearch).
