EThOS is a Higher Education shared service delivered on behalf of the HE community by the British Library.
The service aims to demonstrate the quality of UK research and help attract students and research investment into UK Higher Education by making UK doctoral theses discoverable and openly available online.
An EThOS Toolkit provides guidance and information about e-theses repositories, copyright and IPR issues, repository software and other areas, to help ensure a high level of visibility of UK thesis content.
