[Apologies for cross-posting; of primary interest to UK colleagues only]

Dear Colleagues,

JISC would be very grateful if you could take some time to consider the
information below and feedback your thoughts and decisions by participating
in an online survey.

The UK currently lacks a coherent national service to support access to, and
preservation of, electronic PhD theses. At present, PhD theses are
discovered by potential users in a variety of more or less ad hoc ways, and
delivered to those users largely by physical document delivery. It is widely
recognised that PhD theses are an under-exploited research resource, and
that when they are made available electronically, their use increases
substantially.

EThOS
JISC has funded an 18 month project, EThOS, (www.ethos.ac.uk) whose aim is
to deliver a fully operational, easily scaleable and financially viable
prototype UK online electronic PhD theses service, and supporting
infrastructure. JISC wishes to consult relevant stakeholders in the higher
education community about their views on a range of issues relating to
e-theses, and on the extent to which the EThOS model is a suitable basis for
a sustainable, national service designed to ensure long term open access to
electronic PhD theses.

Further information on the proposed model and a link to the survey can be
found at: http://www.jisc.ac.uk/coll_ethos_consultation.html

Thank you in advance for your help with this consultation.
