Theses and Dissertations Library
As part of the BA’s mission to enhance private or academic studies and research, the BA, in cooperation with Ain Shams University Library, established a depository library for theses and dissertations from all Egyptian universities, serving the academia engaged in higher education and research. Any student who has obtained a Master's or a Doctoral degree from any Egyptian university must deposit a copy of his/her thesis at the BA as a prerequisite for the fulfillment of his/her degree.
The Library houses approximately 89,000 theses, available mainly in Arabic and English in addition to other languages. The Theses Collection is stored in Closed Stacks, but can be made available to BA patrons upon request from any B4 Reference Desk.
Additionally, the Library has compiled a collection of online databases featuring electronic theses and dissertations from universities worldwide, such as CCSD thèses-en-ligne, ETD Center, ERC - Online Theses and Dissertations , Networked Digital Library of Theses and Dissertations (NDLTD), Theses Canada Portal, VT EDTs: Electronic Theses and Dissertations. Abstracts are provided, along with the author's name, university affiliation, degree, and keywords. In most cases, the full text of the theses is also available.
Thesis and Dissertations Library is located in the Closed Stacks on B4 at the Main Library.
