Our institutional repository BURA stores a lot of material, but the advanced search and doesn’t allow searching within all thesis  I usually advise just using BURA to browse through business school theses here Brunel University Research Archive: Brunel Business School Theses (this answer was written for a business researcher, but there are similar pages for all other departments - In BURA select Communities and Collections, A college and department and then the theses section for that department), and searching for theses on the British Library databases Ethos, where you can search within the abstract (and maybe even the full text) as well as limiting to particular universities. Unfortunately Ethos isn’t available at the moment due to an ongoing major cyber attack having taken down the British Library website – I hope it will be back soon, but it is taking weeks, and Ethos isn’t the only service which is affected.  

For now, I suggest a few things:

  • Use the Brunel Library catalogue and limit your search to Print and Electronic theses. Anything in the past 15 years should have a link to access it online
