9:00am to 9:30am
Kravis Center Lower Court 62
Speaker: Mike Diaz, Executive Director, Marketing, ProQuest
This session will explore newly available data on ProQuest’s archive and its potential to help libraries and graduate schools understand the changing landscape of ETDs and graduate research. By mining data and text from ProQuest’s extensive corpus of dissertations and theses, there is potential to generate new insight about graduate education trends and emerging research needs within and across disciplines. This data may also be useful information for benchmarking and sharing of best practices among institutions. A review of current data and research will be followed by a discussion of new research topics, data, and methodologies with potential to create even greater value longer term.
Participants in this session will gain a deeper understanding of how dissertation data can illuminate ETD and graduate education trends and how new insights can potentially benefit libraries, institutions, and the global academic community.
