Digital Science are delighted to announce that we will be hosting a panel discussion at this year’s Virtual Town Hall Meeting being held by the United States Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Association (USETDA).  The event theme “Making Connections – Scholarly Communication in the Digital Age” will focus on the impact and implications of connecting scholars and research from across the country and around the world.  The present use and availability of ETDs and related initiatives, as well as new and emerging ETD practices, needs, and influences that impact administrative, graduate school, and library professionals will be explored during the one day event.

Join Lily Troia, Solutions Account Manager at Digital Science, for our session entitled Adventures in Launching a new ETD Repository: Two Stories of Workflow, Engagement, and Potential Impact.  This session will share the panelists insights, but include guided questions around approaching workflow decisions at the outset of your project, with a focus on engaging various stakeholders, mediating technical challenges, and ultimately ensuring the long term success and sustainability of Electronic Theses and Dissertation projects that address preservation and maximize discovery, access, and downstream impact. 

Full programme details to be released soon.
