Australasian Digital Theses

Australasian Digital Theses (ADT) is another example of open access services for dissertations and theses. According to their website: “ ... the program has two major components, digitisation of theses as part of the deposit process and the digitisation of a selected number of frequently requested existing theses ... each university is responsible for maintaining an archival copy of the theses of their own institution ... the participants will use the same database configuration, standards and metadata system to ensure compatibility.”
