*Cape Town, South Africa* =E2=80=93 The Networked Digital Library of Theses=
 and
Dissertations (NDLTD) today announced the launch of an exciting new
service. Researchers now have a central portal to search and locate
Electronic Theses and Dissertations (ETDs) from universities around the
world.

Visit the new search service at:

Global ETD Search - http://search.ndltd.org/


NDLTD is an international organization dedicated to promoting the adoption,
creation, use, dissemination, and preservation of ETDs. It supports
electronic publishing and open access to scholarship in order to enhance
the sharing of knowledge worldwide.

Global ETD Search =E2=80=93 developed in partnership with the University of=
 Cape
Town, South Africa =E2=80=93 is a free service that allows researchers to f=
ind ETDs
based on keyword, date, institution, language and subject. Researchers may
submit queries and view results using the familiar style of popular Web
search engines. This new search service will allow researchers to locate
relevant theses and dissertations far more effectively than current tools.

Global ETD Search is based on a growing collection of approximately 4
million ETDs from more than 200 universities on all continents. Metadata
records are automatically collected daily from individual institutions and
consortia. These records form the basis of the search service. Once
researchers have located the ETDs of interest, they are able to access the
original documents from the originating institutions.

Universities that wish to participate in this service can find further
information about the NDLTD and the Global ETD Search service at
http://www.ndltd.org/ and
