Getting Hold of a Thesis

Recent theses are often openly available online. If the thesis you want is not available online, we may be able to borrow it on your behalf via Interlibrary Loan.

Please fill in an Interlibrary Loan request (login required). The thesis may only be able to be read at a Massey University campus library.

We will attempt to borrow the thesis for the standard $5 interlibrary loan fee, however, we may ask you to make a contribution to the cost if a thesis is particularly expensive to obtain.

If you need further assistance, contact us.
