Overview and project aims
This project aims to digitise the 860 doctoral theses sourced from UK HEIs
identified by the JISC funded ‘Review of User Requirements for Digitised Resources in Islamic Studies’.
The project will also run an initial feasibility study to test whether the 860 identified thesis are available for digitisation, and if not, how the allocation may be delivered from other related theses.
The project will use The British Library digitisation suite and experience to digitise the identified PhD theses on a cost recovery basis and to make them available via EThOS and the proposed National Gateway to islamic Resources.
