Why use a thesis?

If you are a graduate student who is embarking on a thesis, it is critical to check that your research question has not already been the topic of a previous thesis. Using the databases listed on this page will help you to identify previously researched topics.

If you are seeking information, a thesis can be a gold mine. Even the bibliographies of theses provide opportunities to explore a new subject in depth and locate your research in the context of other published research.
