Susan Copeland

Abstract


The Autumn 1999 edition - LIRN 75 - included an article
by the author which examined activities relating to the
production and use of electronic theses in the UK and
the USA. Since that review was written there have been
several significant developments in terms of progress
with existing projects and enthusiasm for new ventures.
This article considers the expansion of the Networked
Digital Library of Theses and Dissertations (NDLTD)
over the past two years, UNESCO support for
developments in this area, the 'Digital Dissertations'
project at Humboldt University in Berlin, the Australian
DigitaiTheses project,and related activities in the UK.
