A partnership of research libraries and library consortia who are working together to improve global access to European research theses. DART-Europe is endorsed by LIBER (Ligue des Bibliothèques Européennes de Recherche), and it is the European Working Group of the Networked Digital Library of Theses and Dissertations (NDLTD).
The DART-Europe partners help to provide researchers with a single European portal for the discovery of Electronic Theses and Dissertations (ETDs), and they participate in advocacy to influence future European e-theses developments.
The aim of EThOS is:
- To offer a 'single point of access' where researchers the world over can access all theses produced by UK Higher Education
- To support Higher Education Institutions through the transition from print to e-theses
- To help UK Higher Education Institutions expand available content by digitising paper theses
- To demonstrate the quality of UK research and help attract students and research investment into UK HE.
