Brock graduate students have found their place on the digital scholarly map with the launch of the University’s E-Thesis submission protocol for all graduate programs.
The Faculty of Graduate Studies and the James A. Gibson Library are celebrating the completion of a two-year pilot project aimed at facilitating electronic submission for all Master’s and Doctoral Theses as part of Open Access Week, which runs Oct. 22-26. The submission protocol launched Tuesday.
“It’s been a team effort, with staff from the Library, the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Information Technology Services working to set up policies, procedures and the digital repository infrastructure” said Barbara McDonald, associate university librarian for Collections and Liaison Services.
“The project was enthusiastically received by students and by graduate programs. Everyone recognizes the benefits this will have for students and for research activities at Brock.”
