ASU Electronic Dissertations and Theses
Implementing Electronic Dissertations at the University of Chicago
While moving to electronic of dissertations offers some modest opportunity for cost savings by lower expenditures for labor and supplies in the Dissertation Office, it is the move to an ETD environment for access and archiving that provides the larger component of savings. The electronic-only format would generate savings in the Library's binding and shelf preparation unit, in the cost of commercial binding, and in cataloging efficiencies created by using modified catalog records from UMI. Because they include the full-text of the dissertations' abstracts these offer richer access points through the catalog.
