Searching for theses

  • Cross Content: search for SCU theses that are available online
  • SCU Library Search: search for theses that are available online or as print copies - select Theses as the Material type to focus the search results.

Theses passed by the Higher Degree Research Committee at Southern Cross University are deposited into Cross Connect. These records are harvested into the National Library of Australia Trove database. Access to the digital version of theses from all Australian Universities is available through this service and instructions on how to search are provided by Trove.

More information about finding theses from other universities is available in RAISE: Researcher Advanced Information Skills and Education, an independent-learning tool designed to build the research skills of Southern Cross University postgraduate students.
