The Guide for Electronic Theses and Dissertations


This Guide to Electronic Theses and Dissertations (ETD Guide) was born as a result of the support provided by UNESCO in grants given to Virginia Tech and University of Montreal. It was prepared by an international team of faculty and staff, coordinated by Shalini Urs. Its organization and content are the result of the editorial labor of Joseph Moxley. Since then, it has been modified and updated by members of the Board of Directors of the Networked Digital Library of Theses and Dissertations (NDLTD,  The ETD Guide provides information about the following:

For students:

  • creating electronic documents

  • advantages of ETDs

For researchers:

  • impact of enhanced scholarly communication
  • greater range of expression provided by ETDs

For universities:
