TWU Theses via OneSearch

Searching by Author's Name

  • Go to TWU Library Homepage
  • From the dropdown next to the search box, choose Author
  • Type the author's given name and last name. Do not search using the author's first initial and last name as this produces inconsistent results.
  • Clicking Search should take you directly to the catalogue record of the thesis.
  • If this produces no hits, check your spelling or try a Title search.

Searching by Title

  • Go to TWU Library Homepage
  • Choose Title from the dropdown next to the search box.
  • Type or paste the title into the search box and click Search.
  • If the title contains frequently used words, you may need to click on Advanced Search and add the author's surname.

Searching by Keyword

  • If you are not sure of the title or author of a thesis, it is possible to search by keyword and limit it to theses.
  • Enter your search terms in the default search box on the library homepage.
  • After you run your search
    • for newer (since 2013) theses, click in the box next to TWUSpace Collection Only
    • for older print theses (1961-2012) scroll down until you see Library Location and click the box next to Theses (Print)
  • Because of the limited number of theses in the catalogue, this may produce no results.
