Finding a thesis

Find a thesis from the University of Sydney or other universities

The University of Sydney accepted its first digitally submitted (PDF) thesis as the definitive version in August 2013. Over the next 15 months theses were occasionally submitted as hard-bound volumes located in the Rare Book collection. As a consequence finding a thesis between 2013 and the end of 2015 may require a search of both the Sydney eScholarship repository and the Library catalogue.
