Theses and dissertations are important information resources preserved in the Library and on the institutional repository, SUNScholar. To ensure access to these resources, the Library has embarked on retrospective digitisation projects, digitising Stellenbosch University theses and dissertations between 1990 and 2008.

Digitisation of retrospective theses and dissertations means that research previously available only in physical form or hard copy may now be made digitally available online as open access material and resources, enabling wide accessibility to a wealth of information that had previously only been available in limited capacity and distribution. This project also aids in promoting the scholarly output of SU students, researchers and alumni.

Please contact Scholarly Communication if you find a thesis or dissertation that is not available in digital format and they will do their best to digitise it for you.
