SPD Theses Abstracts Online

We've updated the theses section of our website so that it now includes links to abstracts (where provided) for our complete theses holdings.

To view an abstract, simply click on the title of the theses you want and the file will open in pdf format. If you don't have a pdf reader you can download Adobe's reader for free from their website.

The file quality may vary depending on whether the abstract was submitted or available to us in electronic format; many were individually scanned from the hard copies in the Library.

A big thanks to Genevieve Larkin and Orlaith Casey in the Library for all their work on this and also to Maria Thornbury in Administration for her assistance.

In addition to this we have made a submission of theses to Index To Theses for inclusion in the next update of their online catalogue of theses from Universities in Britain and Ireland. We hope that this will help increase visibility and awareness of the high level of research produced in St. Patrick's College.
