Theses and Projects: Research collection: Search on the catalogue


The theses, dissertations and projects are under the "Research" location on the catalogue. Using the  advanced search link, enter your search term as normal, and select "Research" from the Location box. Click submit.

When you do a search on Eolas, you can refine it on the left by clicking on the box  "IT, Sligo Research" (if there are any hits for it).

 Note the author, type of award, year and barcode. If it is one of the older projects, it may be bound with its barcode on the spine. Otherwise, note the year and author/volume.


There are a few things to remember when searching:

  1. As the award that was previously a Diploma is now a Pass degree (Level 7) and the degree is now an Hons degree (Level 8), what people are looking for might seem out of synch. When you search the catalogue, notice that the Hons degrees only go back a few years. For previous years, look at the degrees.

  2. Also some awards have changed name over the years, especially the Quality Management/Assurance, etc. It’s basically the same course – it doesn’t mean we only have two years of any of them.

  3. Most projects submitted now are already bound, so they are individual items. Since 2013, by request of the lecturers, we only accept any over the 70% mark to maintain quality.
