Enhanced Etheses project

In this project partners from the Netherlands (Utrecht University) Denmark (Roskilde University) and the UK (University of Hull) investigated the technical possibilities and challenges faced in stored enhanced/compound electronic theses and dissertations in an Institutional Repository. The Project was a coordinated action between representatives of the four Knowledge Exchange Partners within the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Germany and Denmark, with input from a representative of the DiVA project of Sweden. It carried out an initial analysis of compound (multi-file) electronic theses and dissertations (ETDs) and developed a research roadmap for further work dealing with the production, management and preservation of these complex digital objects.

Documentation and outputs relating to the project can be downloaded below.
