Electronic Theses Pilot Project at Memorial University
About the Project
Memorial’s electronic thesis pilot project is a collaborative effort between the Memorial University Libraries and the School of Graduate Studies. This pilot project began in Fall 2009 with the intention of transitioning graduate students and faculty to using electronic theses at Memorial University. The initiative is in response to Theses Canada’s target date of 2014 beyond which only electronic theses and dissertations will be accepted by that organization, as well as the many tangible benefits of etheses for graduate students, researchers, faculty members, and the University as a whole.
The goals of Memorial’s ethesis pilot project and of the larger electronic theses and dissertation (ETD) initiative include:
- Improving graduate education and research
- Facilitating collaboration and sharing of research
- Empowering graduate students to use digital libraries and resources
- Developing the university’s digital libraries and resources
- Enhancing the quality of theses and making them more expressive of research findings
Please note that this project is ongoing, we will be adjusting the contents of this page frequently over the months to come. Thank you for your patience.
