Valerie McCutcheon, Operations Manager in Research & Enterprise, attended the EuroCRIS meeting (11-13 of November) in St Andrews. Valerie gave a short presentation on the University of Glasgow’s Research System and the Enrich project’s key deliverables.
There are now more than 1000 theses in the Glasgow Theses Service, of which over 869 have freely available full text. This is a great achievement, and much of the credit must go to Marie Cairney and the Library’s E-theses team based in Bibliographic Services, who deal with the deposit of theses on a daily basis and the associated queries from students and supervisors.
People may be interested to know that the download statistics for our theses are very high – the most popular thesis has been downloaded more than 37,000 times!
Our five most popular theses are:
- Bedigan, Kirsten M. (2008)
