Ways of Dissemination, Usage and Impact Tracking of Electronic Theses and Dissertations (ETDs)
Kettler, Meinhard
The digital transformation has had a tremendous impact on graduate research workflows and output. Most theses are submitted as ETDs, although the share varies by country and by subject. Universities worldwide are running institutional repositories to showcase new graduate research, as well as recently digitized material. The presentation will highlight studies on dissertation and theses usage on repositories as well as giving insights into ProQuest’s unique dissertations and theses analytics.

Online Subject Searching of Dissertations
Bratková, Eva
This paper evaluates searching for doctoral dissertations by topic in various online systems. The situation in the Czech Republic is introduced, including the problems involved in completing successful topical searches for dissertations – is it possible to find all relevant materials, or is it sufficient just to find something? The Czech situation is then compared with how systems abroad, particularly in the United States, are being implemented with new access routes for dissertations in the form of linked open data, in which controlled vocabularies of subject terms figure prominently. The paper also discusses how selected European systems whose dissertations are already presented in the WorldCat database will cope with a challenge: “... Over time, these references [for topic entities] will be replaced with persistent URIs to... Linked Data resources”?

Making data in PhD dissertations reusable for research
Schöpfel, Joachim ; Malleret, Cécile
How can an academic library contribute to make data submitted together with PhD dissertations useful for further research? Our paper provides some recommendations for information professionals, based on a review of studies and projects and on empirical evidence from a content analysis of data sources and types from 300 print and digital dissertations in social sciences and humanities (1987–2013) and a survey on data management conducted with more than 300 scientists and PhD students in April and May 2015 on the Lille campus.

10 years with grey literature at Tomas Bata University in Zlín
Budínský, Lukáš ; Fabián, Ondřej
The Library of Tomas Bata University in Zlín has been working on accessioning academic grey literature systematically for the last 10 years. During this time, one of the first information systems storing theses and dissertations changed from a closed, manually updated system into a fully automated and fully open repository with a number of integrations with both internal and external systems. New types of documents were added and several services were introduced for working with grey literature effectively. This contribution will describe its current state and outline the hurdles encountered getting there.

The role of academic library in disseminating grey literature – a case study: Adam Mickiewicz University Repository
Rychlik, Małgorzata
One of the main and crucial strategic projects that any university, or an institution of higher learning, has been recently involved in is the creation and development of an institutional repository. The AMUR repository as an open web-based archive of scholarly material originated in 2010 and has aggregated a collection of more than 11,000 diverse digital objects. This paper presents the types of documents that have been archived in the repository, focusing in particular on unconventional (grey) literature. The following key elements are presented: standards for metadata, archiving rules that specify the criteria for the type of data to be archived, access mode to specific resources and the purpose and structure of deposit licences for the AMUR institutional repository. In addition, the language coverage (Polish, official congress languages and other languages) as well as chronological range of the grey literature deposited with the repository are briefly discussed.
