Reversing the Bricks: The Evolution of ETDs at UNT

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

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.
