Electronic Theses and Dissertations

On my recent trip to Virginia I had the pleasure of a quick look into the VA Tech library. Nothing surprising, a large collection, well used, people waiting to get in when the library opened, an important part of the education and research mission of the university.

When I think of the VA Tech library I think electronic theses and dissertations. They were important in the early development of tools and standards in that area. Now they host the Electronic Thesis/Dissertation OAI Union Catalog as part of The Networked Digital Library of Theses and Dissertations (NDLTD).
