NDLTD Board Member Gail McMillan is conducting a new survey on ETD practices.
ETDs (Electronic Theses and Dissertations) have been part of academia for over 20 years, yet we lack comparative data over time. This is only the second study of general practices of academic institutions regarding ETDs. This study will identify current best practices as well as problem areas for all institutions to be aware of, and it will chart the longitudinal progress of ETD initiatives.
Please take 15 minutes to complete this survey (or forward this email to a more appropriate person at your institution) and remedy the shallow depths of statistical data available about ETDs.

We promise that it really won’t take longer than 15 minutes to respond.
The results of the first baseline survey, “2013 NDLTD Survey of ETD Practices,” are available at http://hdl.handle.net/10919/50978. The results of the 2015 survey will also be made available in easily accessible public repositories.
