>From Beth Matney:
A year ago, I posted information about EThOS, a
source for many (if not most) UK PhD
dissertations. Over the last year, I have
downloaded 28 theses from the UK of interest to
this list (see below), so these are now available
for immediate download. Unfortunately, those from
Oxford & Cambridge Univ.are still not available
from a central source and Courtauld Institute of
Art theses are generally unavailable.
They can be downloaded here: http://ethos.bl.uk/Home.do
Some abstracts are available from EThOS, or I
have most in the 'comments' field here
