Getting ETDs off the Calf-Path: Digital Preservation Readiness for Growing ETD Collections and Distributed Preservation Networks

Getting ETDs off the Calf-Path: Digital Preservation Readiness for Growing ETD Collections and Distributed Preservation Networks

Date: June 11, 2009
Creator: Halbert, Martin; Skinner, Katherine & McMillan, Gail
Description: This paper addresses "Calf-Path" problems for Electronic Theses and Dissertation (ETD) repositories, problems associated with the early ad hoc and idiosyncratic workflow patterns. This paper also documents relatively simple principles and guidelines for such ETD programs that can greatly improve the subsequent likelihood of implementing successful distributed digital preservation programs. These best practices can benefit start-up programs that have not yet established regular procedures and standards for directory structures, metadata, and file naming conventions. These guidelines were distilled from workflow analyses within the MetaArchive Cooperative.

Reversing the Bricks: The Evolution of ETDs at UNT

Date: March 31, 2011
Creator: Terrell, Sandra L.
Description: This presentation discusses electronic theses and dissertations (ETDs). Beginning in fall 1999, UNT has required the submission of theses and dissertations in electronic format. As an early adopter of what was to become the electronic thesis and dissertation (ETD) movement in higher education, UNT encountered and overcame several challenges in the pursuit of providing greater public access to the scholarship conducted at the University. Dr. Terrell was there from the very beginning, and will share her unique perspective on how far the ETD movement has come, and what challenges remain.

Rhapsody in Green: ETDs at the University of North Texas

Date: February 2012
Creator: Kleister, Jill & Alemneh, Daniel Gelaw
Description: This presentation discusses electronic theses and dissertations at the University of North Texas (UNT). UNT began mandatory ETDs for both theses and dissertations in fall 1999, making it the 3rd institution in the world to go "electronic" in this way. There have been challenges along the way, but from the very beginning there has been a close and cordial relationship between the Grad School and the Libraries which serves to "book end" the student's ETD experience in a meaningful and productive way. During this session, UNT's ETD process from start to finish will be explained, especially the ways in which the Grad School and the Libraries work together to enhance the lifecycle management of students' research output at UNT.
