British Library Entry: PhD Thesis

PhD British Library Entry

It used to be that every PhD thesis was automatically collected by the British Library (in hard copy), but as the number of PhD’s have increased, this policy changed (around the time that I finished mine, 2004), and University Libraries were asked to keep a copy of each PhD thesis (which they generally already did), and make it available to the British Library if requested. I was informed by the University of Winchester library that as my thesis had been requested “enough” times (no, I don’t know what “enough” is), that my thesis had therefore been digitised by the British Library and here is it’s catalogue entry – there’s also copies at the Imperial War Museum and Mass-Observation, as well as still in the University Library – and I have more than one copy! Just need to find the time to turn it into a book…
