ETD+ Toolkit

The ETD+ Toolkit is an approach to improving student and faculty research output management. Focusing on the Electronic Thesis and Dissertation (ETD) as a mile-marker in a student’s research trajectory, it provides in-time advice to students and faculty about avoiding common digital loss scenarios for the ETD and all of its affiliated files.

ETD Lifecycle Management Tools

The project team developed and documented software tools to be used as micro-services to assist in ETD lifecycle management. Micro-services are single-function services that can be used individually or incorporated into existing repository workflows. The tools were openly licensed for use and modification through the University of North Texas Libraries and were distributed freely in late 2014 after a public review period. The accompanying documentation (ETD Lifecycle Management Tools Manual) was freely disseminated under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 4.0 license.

ETD Lifecycle Management Workshop

The Lifecycle Management of Electronic Theses & Dissertations (ETDs) Workshop consists of a modular set of Creative Commons (CC-BY 4.0) licensed materials that are available for ETD programs or professional associations to make use of (and adapt) for educating a wide-range of ETD stakeholders. They can be modified, expanded upon, or scaled back to accommodate full-day or half-day in-person workshops, or even brief virtual webinars.
