The DART-Europe E-theses Portal, hosted by UCL Library Services in association with LIBER, is a metadata aggregation that aims to provide one-stop access to Europe’s open access research-level theses. DART-Europe now gives access to over 300,000 full-text research theses from 424 Universities in 23 European countries. The 300,000th thesis to be aggregated was this one, awarded by the Université de Technologie de Belfort-Montbeliard and supplied by STAR (Dépôt légal des thèses électroniques Françaises), DART-Europe’s partners in France.
The Portal offers simple search and browse facilities. Searches can be filtered by University, author, source, country, date and language. A daily list of new theses added to the Portal is available at the Portal home page or as an RSS feed. All of the theses indexed in the Portal should be openly and freely available to read from anywhere in the world at the URLs provided by DART-Europe. Work scheduled for the Summer months includes the aggregation of several thousand thesis records supplied by the Portuguese national aggregation service RCAAP (Repositório Científico de Acesso Aberto de Portugal).
