Many thanks to Henda van den Berg for reminding me of the following link:

Nexus Database for "Current and Completed Research Projects"

I have added the info below to our SUNScholar Help Wiki (http://wiki.lib.sun.ac.za/index.php/SUNScholar ) for future reference (http://wiki.lib.sun.ac.za/index.php/Completed_theses_and_dissertations ) and will also add all future updates on this page.

Kind regards
