Theses and Sources of Information

Having dealt with a recent enquiry relating to Data Mining and Education/Universities I advised a student of various library resources available for their research.

These included books, journal articles (via databases: Business Source Premier, ABI Inform, Science Direct, SAGE Full Text) and the theses collection.

This last source is often overlooked but potentially offers a wealth of useful and unexpected material. This could be reports, official statistics, Internet sites, company Annual Reports and other theses. This information is available quickly by glancing at the Bibliography (list of sources of information used in a piece of research) at the rear of a PhD thesis, which is the result of 3 years research effort on the part of the author.

PhD theses are held at the Joule library primarily, but also within the Eddie Davies Library (Postgraduate access. By prior arrangement for undergraduate students). Additionally there are a small number of undergraduate dissertations held in the Precinct Library. Details of this collection is available from the library catalogue, by selecting ‘More Search Options’, then ‘Theses‘ within the Collection drop down menu.
