Answer

Under the section on fairdealing in the Copyright act, you can copy a theses or a dissertation if this is for non-commercial purposes.  However, should the author publish the work in electronic format, either as a book or as an ethesis, you must seek written permission before you copy the work as the thesis or dissertation is considered to be a published work.  You must also make sure you acknowledge all content that has been taken from the thesis or the dissertation by referencing the original correctly.  See IOE LibGuide on Referencing for more information. 

Tip!  See the LibGuide on Intellectual Property Rights for further information on copyright.
