Law Library Guide: Finding theses

This guide will help you understand and develop the skills necessary to use the Law Library at UCT

Locating a theses electronically

UCT Libraries keeps copies of all UCT doctoral and masters theses, both electronically and in hard copy. The hard copy of a thesis may be requested from the Loans Desk or access in COL.

The electronic copies of theses (and other scholarly works) are available in the institutional repository, Open UCT.



Access OpenUCT either by clicking the icon above or here.

To search on OpenUCT, simply put in your keywords in the main search box. You can filter the content by 'Research'.

A search results page will open which will allow you first to filter by faculty, author, date, title or subject and then will display the preliminary results.
