  • It is normal that students need to study the dissertations written by others in detail. One can't understand the format, style of writing if one doesn't study them minutely. If someone has found a research paper written on the same subject as the one they intend to work on, the person has to spend a lot of time with the paper. In a library it is not very congenial to spend hours poring over papers. It affects the eyes and health. Having a database would mean students can easily study the thesis or dissertations at ease. They can take print outs and read them, marking out important things. That is a lot more helpful for the tech savvy generation.

  • More material
  • Previously the students had access to the archives of their university and maybe of the public libraries. They didn't always find material that helped them in their own research. Databases mean that a wider range of material is available to the students. They can browse between public archives, university archives and online published research papers as well as samples. A wealth of resource therefore becomes accessible to one student without having to run from place to place. One is bound to find something of help in this bounty of thesis and dissertations in the databases.

  • Access to winning dissertations
  • Prior to internet archiving people could not access research papers that had won awards for being revolutionary. Public were not allowed to view or study them, they were kept within vaults. Now however many such papers have been compiled by databases. These databases either provide free access to the research papers or you have to pay some meager amount. Students can study these papers as reference, thanks to the databases.
