University of Alberta Digitization; still waiting on LAC

The University of Alberta Libraries is digitizing more than 14,000 master’s and Ph.D. theses produced at the university since its establishment in 1908, part of a program that aims to digitize as much of the libraries’ print collection as possible and make it accessible to everyone. So far, 102,759 of the U of A libraries’ items have been digitized with Internet Archive, including more than 2,200 theses.
It's occasionally worth searching out a university thesis as it will cover a topic of family history interest providing context for your family happenings.
Find out more in this article from Folio.
Library and Archives Canada's Theses Canada Portal, with more than half a million theses, has not been updated since summer 2016. Reactivation is promised this year. Let's look forward to an announcement.
