You now have access to 2 separate ProQuest Dissertation & Theses (PQDT) databases. One covers UK & Irish material only – and the other covers US & International material. Both databases are abstract & indexing databases only i.e. no full text (unless you pay for a dissertation or thesis yourself).
The 2 databases you now have access to are:
1. ProQuest Dissertations and Theses (PQDT) A&I: covers US and international dissertations and theses. Contains citations, abstracts as well as the first 10% of the dissertation (where available in pdf).
2. ProQuest Dissertations and Theses (PQDT) – UK & Ireland: covers UK & Irish theses only. This is a new database – access began in mid-December 2010.
Both of these databases are available via the same ProQuest platform: http://proquest.umi.com/login.
Access is via IP address and we have 5 concurrent users.
Please note: the Library does not subscribe to ‘ProQuest Dissertations and Theses – Full Text (PQDT – Full Text)’.
