Rhapsody in Green: ETDs at the University of North Texas

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.
