Bath submits 400,000th record on EThOS database

The 400,000th record added to the EThOS (e-theses online service) data at the British Library was a study done at the University.

The milestone record is EThOS ID 648944, 'Investigation of the Clostridium difficile sortase by gene knockout, X-ray crystallography and biochemical characterisation', by former PhD Biology & Biochemistry student Christopher James Chambers.

The study looks at non-antibiotic therapies to prevent people from contracting antibiotic-associated diarrhoea (Clostridium difficile).

The thesis was awarded by Bath, harvested from OPUS, Bath’s institutional repository, and is available for download from both EThOS and OPUS.

Kate Robinson, University Librarian, said: “We recognise the ongoing value of PhD research, and are committed to making all our PhD theses discoverable and available for future researchers to build upon. In 2016 the University will be celebrating its 50th anniversary. The complete digitisation of our PhD thesis collection, including the many volumes made available via EThOS, is one of the milestones we will be proud to achieve.”
