Go to the FIND > Thesis menu of the library website, search for a dissertation,
and click "Online access" below the title to view the full text.

    When you click the "Online access" link of a dissertation and a viewer download page is shown (refer to left screenshot), this means you have to download the ezPDF Reader to view the full text. On a Windows PC, click the rectangular box with an arrow pointing down, and as for a Mac PC, click the blue box with the Apple logo to download and install the software.

Print versions of dissertations are stored in closed stacks, so to view a dissertation in print, you have to make a request through the library website or visit the Book Stacks office on the 3rd floor of the Main building. Not all dissertations can be loaned, and even those available for loan can only be viewed inside the library building. Online access is recommended in most cases.



Click the FIND > S-Space menu on the library website for access

S-Space is an open access repository (DSpace) of scholarly works created by the SNU faculty, students and staff. The digital archive preserves the research output of SNU members and makes it available to a wider audience.

  • Community > Sub-community > Collection
    The repository is organized into communities. A community usually stores resources from an SNU college or institution. A sub-community inside a community holds academic works generated by members of a department. Different types of works are divided into collections inside a sub-community.

Check the About S-Space page for details on how to use the repository.
