Cybertesis

Cybertesis, a portal developed by the University of Chile (Information Services & Library System), provides an easily accessible tool to full text electronic thesis published in different universities of the world.

Cybertesis.NET is a powerful tool of consultation that allows the simultaneous searches through a single Web interface, and to recuperate more than 27,000 full text theses stored in 27 different servers and university repositories, by means of the use of OAI protocol (Open Archives Initiative) as a service provider (metadata harvesting).

Each university is responsible of the production, preservation and diffusion of its theses. If you want your institution to participate, simply make your ETD collection available to OAI harvesting and drop them a line.

The interface is available in English, French, Portuguese, and Spanish.
