ETD Working Group Wiki
ETD-WG meets on the first Wednesday of the month at 1pm. Sessions are conducted by Elluminate / Blackboard.
Final version 1/04/2011:
The ETD working group will investigate ETD description among SUS institutions, and make recommendations on how to facilitate standardization of ETD metadata, with the overall focus on improving ETD metadata sharing and aggregation. For example, in order to facilitate aggregation of ETD metadata in MANGO, the working group may make recommendations on standard values for fields in MARC, DC, ETD-MS or other appropriate metadata formats. Similarly, the working group may share or recommend ETD metadata guidelines and/or crosswalks which could improve the creation and dissemination of ETD metadata for inclusion in the NDLTD, Digital Commons, and other systems.
