This database to which we subscribe has recently increased massively the number of links to the full text of PhD theses. Most theses submitted since 1997 in this database can now be viewed in pdf format, together with some older theses.
Proquest Dissertations and Theses Global provides details of theses submitted in Britain and Ireland between 1716 and the present and in the United States since 1861. It also has records of many theses from elsewhere in the world. It’s an excellent database for finding details of PhD theses on a topic.
