Library and Archives Canada has temporarily suspended thesis harvesting from university institutional repositories in order for technological improvements to be made to its systems. Users of the Theses Canada Portal will be notified when harvesting recommences.
Theses Canada, launched in 1965 at the request of the deans of Canadian graduate schools, is a collaborative program between Library and Archives Canada (LAC) and nearly 70 universities accredited by Universities Canada. It strives to:
- acquire and preserve theses and dissertations from participating universities
- provide free access to Canadian electronic theses and dissertations in the collection
- facilitate access to non-digital theses and dissertations in the collection.
The collection contains both microfiche and electronic theses and dissertations that are for personal or academic research purposes. Any commercial use, publication, reproduction or lending of this material is strictly prohibited.
