Students studying in the Library

Working in partnership with ProQuest will make Lancaster’s graduate research available to the global research community, enhancing the international research profile of both authors and the University. More than 4 million researchers at 3,100 PQDT universities around the world will have access to research theses authored by Lancaster graduates. Primary citations will appear in major scholarly subject indexes and Google Scholar, and Lancaster can also track, monitor and see trends in usage.

Andrew Barker, Director of Library Services & Learning Development at Lancaster University said “I am delighted that Lancaster University Library has joined ProQuest’s globally recognized Dissertations and Theses collection. Transformative research, and the dissemination of new knowledge, lies at the heart of our endeavors. Contributing our research to PQDT will strengthen its visibility and will support Lancaster University’s vision to be a globally significant university.”

Angela D’Agostino, Vice President of Product Management at ProQuest said “We are honored to welcome Lancaster University to the community of global research institutions who already include their graduate research in PQDT. We look forward to a long and fruitful partnership with the University, and to making this crucial information available to scholars at every stage of their academic career.”
