Electronic Dissertations

We offer support for your institution's Electronic Theses and Dissertations (ETD) program. The ETD program provides storage, web access, and security controls for ETDs.

Traditional Method

Your graduate school or library provides software allowing students to upload and describe their ETDs and sends us a copy of the accepted final ETD along with descriptive metadata in METS format. We host the URL online, provide a PURL, create a catalog record in your own Aleph OPAC, submit the ETD to the Florida Digital Archive, and manage access controls.

Starting an ETD Program

Digital Collections staff at FLVC are available to speak with your library and other departments on campus about starting an ETD program. Several members of the Digital Initiatives Standing Committee are also available to talk about ETD programs at their local campus.
