The value of open access to theses and dissertations

Gail P. ClementScholarly Communications Librarian & Associate Professor at Texas A&M University, shared two new papers about the value of open access to electronic theses and dissertations (ETDs). They are an essential component of effective graduate education. In her words, "Written entirely independently, these two works in combination articulate the power and promise of the ETD experience as an opportunity to empower the newest generation of scholars to make meaningful and impactful contributions to their disciplines and to society".
A summary of these articles, with links to each, may be found online
