The New EThOS

February 19, 2009

The digital revolution gathers pace as the British Library’s Electronic Theses Online Service enters its Beta testing phase. Registered users can now search and download theses submitted at many British universities. The collection is growing on a digitize-on-demand basis, with a 10 day wait for new theses to be scanned before they can be downloaded. Oxford and Cambridge won’t play with the other children but there are many good things here. Michael Horton’s thesis on Thomas Goodwin and assurance and Robert Letham’s epic thesis on assurance were just two of the items straight into my basket. This is a great (and overdue) resource. It’s like UMI, but free! Check it out at ethos.bl.uk.
