All Swedish doctoral theses are archived at the University Library. Search the theses in our catalogue LUBcat. Lund University theses from 1996 onwards are also available in the database LUP. You will find the theses from the current academic year at Lund University displayed on a special shelf on our entrance floor.

How to find Swedish theses

  • LUBcat– Search our Swedish doctoral theses. Not all older theses are visible here.
  • LIBRIS – Search for theses in Swedish research libraries. Many older Swedish theses have been digitized and can be found here.
  • LUP (Lund University Publications) – Search for theses from Lund University 1996–. Approximately a third of these can be read in full text.

Many but not all our older theses are searchable in Catalogue -1957. Please contact us if you are unable to locate an older thesis.

  • Catalogue -1957 – You will find all Swedish theses 1855–1957 here by searching alphabetically by the author's name. Before 1855, they are registered selectively by supervisor name.

How to find international theses

In general, you cannot find more recent international theses at Swedish libraries. They can be ordered as inter-library loans. In that case you pay for a copy of the thesis (in print or electronic). However, we have many older international theses up to 1957. Please contact us for help with searches and requests.
