Doctoral theses represent a largely inaccessible mine of useful information. There is no simple way of finding out whether someone in another institution has written a thesis that is relevant to your own work, or of reading it. Here, we describe how this situation could be remedied by making theses freely available and easy to search in an international 'Thesis-Line' accessible through the Internet.
