Notes

Abstract: The University of North Texas (UNT) Electronic Theses and Dissertations (ETD) program began in 1999. Like most institutions that have implemented ETD programs for current degrees, UNT has a collection of print theses and dissertations that predate the ETD program. Although UNT is one of the early adopters of ETD, the UNT retrospective conversion project for pre-1999 print theses and dissertations was not started until 2010. This presentation will relate the lessons learned from the UNT T&D retrospective conversion project, including UNT's approach to the difficulties that were foreseen as well as the unanticipated challenges that came up along the way.
