Universities, colleges, and other academic institutions are increasingly implementing and supporting institutional repositories (IRs). Typically, an institutional repository includes a variety of digital documents produced by scholars throughout the institution, including journal article e-prints, data sets, presentations, technical reports, and teaching materials. Institutional repositories can also include digital versions of graduate students' theses and dissertations (called ETDs).
The 6th edition of The Electronic Theses and Dissertations Bibliography is also available - to visit this comprehensive resource click here. The Electronic Theses and Dissertations Bibliography includes selected English-language articles, books, conference papers, technical reports, unpublished e-prints and other scholarly textual sources that are useful in understanding electronic theses and dissertations. The bibliography does not cover digital media works (such as MP3 files), editorials, e-mail messages, interviews, letters to the editor, presentation slides or transcripts, or weblog postings.
Bailey's bibliography series are highly recommended and are the most comprehensive resource about ETDs, IRs, Open Access and Scholarly Communications. To learn more visit his Digital Scholarship Series.
