Atelier national de reproduction des thèses to access French thesis. (See also the database Thèses.fr).
The National Theses Reproduction Workshop was created in Lille in 1971. The 14th October 1985 convention between the national Department of Higher Education and Lille 3 University, of which the Workshop is a shared division, has defined its missions explicitly: The reproduction on microfiches of theses in literature, social, legal and political sciences and their institutional distribution to public organizations of a scientific, cultural and professional nature. The 2001 decree extends this mission to the electronic distribution of theses defended in local universities; the reproduction and the commercial distribution of printed theses (with the author's permission) offered by the 'Theses a la carte' division since 1996 or on publisher's demand; the reissuing of older publications belonging to the public sphere. 2 catalogues are available:
The complete catalogue of the theses reproduced by the Workshop since 1971 lists all the titles classified according to discipline. These works are distributed to public institutions of a scientific, cultural and professional nature.
The 'Theses a la carte' catalogue, which includes all the titles available for sale in print format, exists in two forms;
- The complete electronic catalogue, from which you can place your orders.
- Printed thematic brochures which are sent to libraries, associations, research centres, institutions, private individuals.
