The Univeristy Library Management has decided that printed copies of student theses no longer will be registered in the library catalogue from 2013. Electronic published student theses in full text will, however, be available in the catalogue as before.
The decision is due to the large number of paper copies, which is very labour intensive, and the great wearing of the printed copies. A lot of the student theses are never returned to the library after loan or just disappear from the collection. Concerning the environmental aspect it is more wise publishing the theses electronically in full text.
