Abstract: This briefing will highlight and discuss the early findings from an Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS)-funded project hosted by the University of North Texas (UNT) that is researching and documenting a range of life cycle curation and preservation practices for ETDs. An accompanying workshop is planned for summer 2013 in conjunction with United States Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Association (USetdA) 2013 conference. This project briefing will solicit advice on proper delivery formats. The briefing will also discuss developments toward a series of micro services that will assist ETD programs with enhancing the curation of their ETDs; implementation use cases will be discussed. Partners on this project include Educopia Institute, the Networked Digital Library of Theses & Dissertations, and the university libraries of Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech), Pennsylvania State University, Boston College, Indiana State University, Rice University, and the University of Arizona.
