Improving access to European e-theses: the DART-Europe Programme.
Presented at: LIBER 37th Annual General Conference, Koç University, Istanbul.
DART-Europe (Digital Access to Research Theses - Europe) is a partnership of research libraries and library consortia who are working together to improve global access to European research theses. The Programme is endorsed by LIBER as part of the work of the LIBER Access Division, and it is the European Working Group of the Networked Digital Library of Theses and Dissertations (NDLTD). DART-Europe serves as a European networking forum on issues relating to electronic theses. The DART-Europe partners share an enthusiasm for open access to research theses, and they have helped to provide researchers with the DART-Europe E-theses Portal, a service which enables the discovery of the open access e-theses offered by institutions and consortia from more than 10 European countries. The speaker will give an overview of DART-Europe, its progress, and the partners' future plans. The talk will include an introduction to the DART-Europe E-theses Portal.
