What happens to your thesis once the examiner reports are back and you have made your corrections? This session will help prepare candidates for the penultimate step in their research journey - including their thesis in the university library collection. From the beginning of 2011, ECU will move to digital retention of the final thesis and no longer require a bound copy. There are also changes being made to making ECU theses available online. David Howard, Manager of Library Collections and Access, will outline what digital format is required by the library for inclusion in the collection. He will also explain “Research Online” (the digital repository which will include theses), copyright requirements, and limiting access to theses with confidential information.
