Library Toolkit: Essentials for Success


Nova Southeastern University’s (NSU) Oceanographic Campus Library has always had a unique challenge in that it is the final clearing house for student capstone, thesis, and dissertation binding and publication. The library has traditionally been the host of the final print publication and the liaison between the student and the bindery. With the launch of NSUWorks, NSU’s institutional repository, 6 years ago, the library worked to develop an innovative and effective start to finish workflow for student Electronic Theses and Dissertations (ETDs) to change the physical lifecycle of NSU’s theses and dissertations into a virtual ETD lifecycle. Every step of the process, from proposal to defense to review and final published draft, is now contained within the NSUWorks ecosystem. Attendees will learn how to harness the power of their institutional repositories to host non-traditional workflows and how to become deeply embedded in the daily operations of the university administrative processes.
