Abstract: The University of North Texas (UNT) became an early adopter of ETDs when it required submissions to be made electronically in 1999. The UNT Libraries acts as stewards for this content and over the past twelve years has preserved and provided access to over 4,100 documents via the UNT Digital Library. During this time, large portions of scholarly publishing and research have transitioned to the Web resulting in a shift in the topics, user groups, research and citation patterns in these documents. this paper attempts at quantifying this shift with an analysis of the linking patterns in the 4,100+ documents in the UNT ETD collection, which acts as a case study for this analysis. The UNT Libraries carried out this research to better understand what effect has this shift to the Web had on the use of Web resources as the research focus, or primary citation target of theses and dissertations. In order to answer this question, the authors analyzed the scope of referencing Web resources, how they differ between disciplines, and how the scope has changed over the past twelve years at UNT. This research proposes a set of next steps for institutions responsible for managing these documents, and can be logically extended to the area of faculty publishing in institutional repositories.
