Finding theses by institution on Trove

Use Trove to find theses by university.To limit results by institution, go to Search the ADT - Member Institution Views

The Trove links populate the search box with the code for the university concerned e.g. nuc:VMOU (for Monash University). Type your search term(s) after this code, rather than overwriting it, to limit your results to the university concerned. If you do not find the thesis you are looking for, try unticking the "Available online" box - it may not yet be digitised.
