The ANU theses collection can be searched via the Library Catalogue.

All hard copy ANU Doctoral and some Masters' theses are held in a restricted area of the Menzies Library, with the exception of Master of Laws, and Master of International Law theses (pre-October 1987) which are held in the Law Library. ANU Honours theses are held by the ANU Colleges with the exception of selected ANU Law Honours theses which are held in the Law Library.

Some ANU electronic PhD, MPhil, and Doctorate by Research theses, are available in the ANU Research Digital Theses collection.

Hard copy theses can be requested by ANU and non-ANU users for reading within the Library, but cannot be borrowed.

The ANU Library, at the request of a thesis author, can implement ANU theses access restrictions and users should be aware of these restrictions.

These restrictions include:

  • whether a non-ANU person is permitted access to the thesis
  • whether photocopying from the thesis is permitted
  • whether the Library is permitted to duplicate a copy for another institution.

To check whether access restrictions apply to a particular thesis, ask at the Menzies Library Information Desk or email the Menzies Library Information Access Coordinator.

Non-ANU readers are advised to check in advance whether they will be granted access to a particular thesis.

Non-ANU theses

Non-ANU theses (without access restrictions) are on the open shelves.
