About the ETD Workshop Series
Completing a thesis or dissertation is a major milestone for any graduate student, representing the culmination of years of research and writing. But if you only begin to manage its electronic assets when you turn in the completed product, it may be too late. Presented by the University Libraries and the Office of Graduate Education, the ETD (Electronic Thesis and Dissertation) Workshop Series encourages you to think about these issues earlier in your grad studies and provides you with the tools to manage and preserve your digital research.
The ETD Workshop Series offers three sessions, each representing a different aspect of electronic file management. Attendance at all sessions is not required, come to as few or as many as you like.
Registration is required at cmu.edu/graduate.
