Open Access Theses and Dissertations (OATD)

Description OATD is a discovery service intended to improve our ability to put researchers and scholars in touch with the valuable and unique OA content in our ETD collections. It works with each site's metadata to index only records that are actually ETDs and are freely available online. In addition to harvested metadata, it includes a growing amount of full text "snippets" and sample images to help guide searchers. (Snippets show search hits only, from about the first 30 pages of the thesis - OATD does not index or redistribute any document's full text.)
