Networked Digital Library of Theses & Dissertations


The Boston College University Libraries recently joined the Networked Digital Library of Theses and Dissertations (NDLTD), an international group dedicated to the use and dissemination of electronic theses and dissertations.

Boston College’s latest Open Access theses and dissertations, which are available free of charge, are now searchable through NDLTD Union Catalog’s search tools, Scirus ETD Search and VTLS Visualizer, increasing the overall visibility of student works online. Unlike traditional commercial models, NDLTD facilitates Open Access by providing direct links to records and downloadable PDF’s in Boston College’s institutional repository, eScholarship.
