Need to Read Someone Else's PhD Thesis? Try ETHOS!

If you're a researcher, you may well need to access other people's doctoral theses.  If the person did their PhD in the UK, you might be able to download it FOR FREE, using the British Library ETHOS service.

It works like this:- 
  1. Look for the thesis in Copac to check details and whereabouts.
  2. Register as an Ethos user. 
  3. Look for the thesis on the Ethos website.
  4. Choose the free download option, if it's there.  
  5. Download it, save to your computer, enjoy!
If you're a registered researcher or member of staff at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, and you happen to find a thesis that is not free to download, please contact the Whittaker Library.  We may be able to purchase a print copy via Ethos, which we'll add to library stock.

We're the very helpful Whittaker Library at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, here to support the learning and teaching of our creative community.
