Thursday 25th July, 2013
11:30am to 12:30pm
Kravis Center 102
Speaker: David Seitz, Consultant, bepress Consulting Services
Big changes are afoot at graduate schools around the country. They are not just changing how they collect and provide access to theses and dissertations; they are also streamlining the submission and review workflows themselves. In this presentation, bepress’s ETD expert Dave Seitz will provide an overview of the ETD publishing landscape culled from the bepress Digital Commons community (280 institutions). The presentation will consider the “life cycle” of an ETD in its myriad forms, ranging from standard processes such as administrator-submitted batch uploads, to more progressive workflows, such as those utilizing student-submission and peer-review tools. Dave will share how these different approaches to the workflow, organization, and presentation of ETDs meet unique needs on campus. Paths to the inclusion of undergraduate work (capstones, honors projects, etc.) will also be discussed.
The presentation is intended for both graduate office administrators and library professionals. Attendees will come away with not just an understanding of the top models that are emerging for capturing, reviewing, and presenting ETDs but also a set of considerations for optimizing their own ETD “life cycle”.
