Re-use by external services

EThOS metadata is available for re-use by third parties including international resource discovery services. We ask that external services route the researcher back to the EThOS database, and preferably direct to the specific relevant EThOS record.

We will never provide the full text theses to third parties for sale or re-supply to others. We would expect that our supplied metadata would also not be used to support the commercial sale of UK theses.

Anyone may access the metadata free of charge. The metadata may be re-used in any medium without prior permission for not-for-profit purposes provided the OAI Identifier or a link to the original metadata record is given.

EThOS data is available for harvesting via the OAI-PMH protocol. The base URL is http://ethos.cs.uct.ac.za/oai(external link) .

The data provider service is hosted by the international organisation NDLTD(external link) .
