Electronic theses and dissertations are often a natural starting point and a great fit for institutional repositories. In this webinar, Meghan Banach, Metadata Catalog Librarian at University of Massachusetts - Amherst, will address the benefits and challenges of managing ETDs through the repository, and best practices the library has developed over time. Her discussion will include a consideration of workflows, access controls, and metadata collection, as well as partnerships between the Graduate School and the library. Also in this webinar, Courtney Smith, manager of Outreach and Scholarly Communications at bepress, will talk about how Digital Commons can meet the needs of graduate programs across campus.
