Retention, Loan and Supply of Theses and Dissertations in University of Greenwich Campus Libraries

The three Libraries of the University aim to hold or link to electronic copies of the following theses and dissertations produced by the Faculties on the Campus served by the Library:

  1. All PhD theses.
  2. All theses produced as part of a Masters degree by research.
  3. Representative samples (of best practice, as decided by the Faculties) of dissertations produced as part of taught Masters degrees.
  4. Representative samples (of best practice, as decided by the Faculties) of dissertations produced as part of Undergraduate degrees.

The latter two categories (3 and 4) will be held for three years either in print format at Medway or in Moodle research methods courses (Avery Hill and Greenwich).

Categories 1 and 2 will be held in perpetuity in GALA the Greenwich Academic Literature Archive.
