Welcome to UWSpace
UWSpace is the University of Waterloo's institutional repository for the research and scholarship produced by its faculty, students, and staff. A service of the Library, UWSpace provides researchers with a free, secure, and long-term home for the presentation, dissemination, and preservation of their research and scholarship. By utilizing UWSpace researchers ensure their work achieves compliance with the Tri-Agency Open Access Policy on Publications.
Looking for Waterloo theses and dissertations? UWSpace contains all theses and dissertations published from October 2006 on, and a subset from 1996 through 2006, when electronic submission was optional. Older theses can be accessed by searching the library catalogue by title or author last name.
