As more universities solicit electronic submission of graduate degree documents, access to dissertations and theses is rapidly changing. This presentation for CRL collection development, reference, and resource-sharing librarians, based on a preconference workshop at the 2009 Charleston Conference, will outline the new challenges in access to dissertations and theses, including:

  • What to expect from emerging online sources of electronic theses and dissertations (EDTs), such as Project EThOS (U.K.), and NDLTD (U.S.)
  • CRL services to support discovery of and access to non-U.S. dissertations and theses.
