There are a number of reasons prospective honours students might like to look at the School Thesis Library. The first is to be able to see what a good recent thesis looks like; to see the standard of work required, and the various approaches that might be taken to a topic. Another reason is to see the range of topics researched in the past, giving rise to new possibilities for future topics. Once a topic has been selected and approved, the library can be a wonderful source of references from previous scholarship.
Access to the Thesis library is available by appointment with Margaret Higgs, Room E336, Forgan Smith Building. The collection has been catalogued on Endnote and can be keyword searched.
