Dissertations and Thesis


    Local Dissertations and Thesis

    The University Library is proud to make accessible to its customers the full text version of all its master and doctorate dissertations and thesis held (written by staff and students) via our forthcoming e-thesis portal. External users will only have access to the abstracts and bibliographic record.

    Hard copy dissertations and thesis remain available in the library for 'Reference' use. Unless there is more than one copy, then borrowing of second and subsequent copies is permitted. Staff items, where we hold them, are catalogued and shelved according to the relevant awarding body. Dissertations from the Kurdistan region are all shelved together at 378.5672 in order of their departmental subject and then the author’s last name.
