The UTREES database is the database form of the UTREES project which originated with the print form in 2008, compiled and edited by Gregory Walker and J. S .G. Simmons. It lists details of over 5,800 doctoral and selected masters’ theses from British and Irish universities from 1907 onwards, covering research relating to Eastern and Central Europe, Russia, and the area of the former USSR, including Central Asia, the Caucasus and Siberia. The database is continuously updated and is freely accessible.
The editor of UTREES has just announced today the good news that, under an agreement with the British Library, UTREES has now begun to provide access to the full text of many of its listed theses by means of links to the BL’s massive EThOS database which provides the full text of thousands of UK Higher Education theses.
- Access eThOS: http://ethos.bl.uk (registration as members of UoE is required for full-text access)
A high proportion of theses on UTREES already have entries on EThOS. Editor Gregory Walker says:
“… we’re now working to attach links from one database to the other. We’ve already connected all relevant theses added since 2008 (about 2,300 of them), and links to the remaining 2,000-odd will be added in the coming months. For more details, please see the ‘Access to Theses’ section on the UTREES website…. We hope that this enhancement process will be of real benefit to users of UTREES, and will welcome any comments or queries. Please contact me [Gregory Walker] at firstname.lastname@example.org“.
