This week’s Featured Online Resource is the Open Access Theses and Dissertations (OATD) (http://oatd.org). OATD provides and index to more than 1.9 million dissertations and theses from over 800 colleges, universities, and research institutions around the world. You can use the basic search on the site’s home page, but they also offer a robust advanced search option, where you can narrow down by language the dissertation and thesis was written in, the country it was published in, and/or by date range.
Most of these dissertations and theses are available freely online.
October 21-27, 2013 is Open Access Week. Celebrate Open Access Week by viewing a dissertation or thesis that is available freely online.
