Abstract: ETDs represent a wealth of scholarly and artistic content created by Master's and Doctoral students in the degree-seeking process. The successful management of ETDs requires effort across the entire lifecycle to ensure that ETDs are preserved and made accessible in a manner that today's users expect. This poses challenges and presents opportunities to those who organize and provide access to ETDs. This presentation will highlight and discuss the early findings of an IMLS-funded project on Lifecycle Management of Electronic Theses and Dissertations. The project aims to enhance ETD curators' and other institutional stakeholders' knowledge and skills, by promoting best practices and creating tools that address specific needs in managing ETDs throughout their life-cycle. The project partners are the University of North Texas (UNT), the Educopia Institute, the Networked Digital Library of Theses and Dissertations, the Virginia Tech Libraries, Rice University, Boston College, Indiana State University, Penn State University, and the University of Arizona. The partners will develop and share a toolkit of guidelines, educational materials, and a set of software tools for life-cycle data management and preservation of ETDs. This project will take place over a two year period from October 2011 to September 2013.
