The University of Manchester Library is one of the largest subscribers to e-journals and databases in the UK but we don’t have access to everything.
If you find that we don’t hold a book, report, journal article or conference paper that you need, you can use our Inter-Library Loans service.
Hard copy PhD theses before 2009 produced at The University of Manchester are held at the Joule Library.
You can search Library Search for a thesis, make a note of the shelfmark (eg Th 16574), bring the number to the issue counter and we will retrieve it for you. Please note that they are reference only and cannot be removed from the Library.
We do not hold Masters or undergraduate theses.
Below is a link to our dedicated thesis support page.
Electronic versions of many open-access University of Manchester research theses, submitted from the 2010 session onwards, are available on Pure, the University of Manchester’s internal repository.
It is worthwhile carrying out a search on Google Books to see if a book is available to view online.
If you have a reading list for your course and the books are in use by other students, you can check to see if it has been fully or partially digitised by Google.
