How to find theses and dissertations
1. TalTech Digital Collection
To find dissertations and other graduation theses defended in TalTech, go to TalTech Digital Collection https://digikogu.taltech.ee/en/. Dissertations are being published since 2005 and graduation theses since 2014.
Choose a collection, for example, graduation theses. All bachelor's, as well as master's and diploma theses, will be displayed. You can tick the collections you want to see or remove your previous selections. To limit the number of found items, add some words from the title, author or supervisor name, TalTech structural unit, keyword or publication years range. After entering some letters, the ten most relevant options will be displayed. Results can be sorted by authors, titles or publication years.
In the same way, you can browse other collections together with limiting and sorting the results. In addition, it is possible to browse collections using Indexes.
To find specific theses or dissertations use Search options. You can enter several search terms and combine them with Boolean operators AND, OR, NOT. For example:
- drones AND quadcopters – to find publications containing both words
- drones OR quadcopters – to find publications containing at least one of the two words
- drones NOT quadcopters – to find publications containing only the first but not the second word
For fulltext search use quotation marks to search for an exact phrase. For example "unmanned vehicles" finds publications containing exactly the same words in the same order.
If necessary, specify a collection. By default, all collections are selected. To select multiple collections for your query, hold down the Ctrl button.
