Graduate works of generations of scholars are crucial in promoting your school’s reputation for scholarship and recruiting talented faculty and students. As the offsite digital repository of dissertations and theses for the Library of Congress, ProQuest has a long tradition as a global leader in archiving and preserving dissertations and theses in all formats.
At our webinar, you’ll find out how you can join other institutions worldwide that have already taken advantage of our comprehensive Digital Archiving and Access Program — an easy, cost-effective way to digitize a valuable record of research performed at your institution.
You’ll see how you can:
• Increase the visibility of your research output through multiple channels, including your IR, your OPAC, and ProQuest Dissertations & Theses Full Text and PQDT Global.
• Redeploy shelf space to be used in better ways.
• Save project management time and resources.
Our Digital Archiving and Access Program offers:
• Archiving: Dissertations and theses gap analysis, filming, and quality control measures at every step of the process with reviews for completeness and copyright compliance. New OCR (Optical Character Recognition) scanning allows keyword searching, and OCR files and archival microfilm copy are available for your library.
• Preservation: Offsite housing in a temperature- and humidity-controlled environment.
• Discovery: Online access for your library’s authorized users to all of your submitted works via our free Dissertations & Theses @ service with MARC records to each title.
• Promotion: Inclusion in ProQuest Dissertations and Theses–Full Text for global visibility with full indexing, controlled vocabulary, and subject codes.
During our webinar, we’ll also explain how our program is flexible to meet the needs of your institution.
