The Networked Digital Library of Theses and Dissertations (NDLTD), an international organization dedicated to promoting the adoption, creation, use, dissemination, and preservation of electronic theses and dissertations (ETDs), invites you to attend the 22nd International Symposium of Theses and Dissertations, ETD 2019.

ETD 2019 held in Porto, Portugal, from 06 to 08 November, is hosted by Portucalense University, and co-organized by the General Library of Portucalense University and The Portuguese Association of Librarians, Archivists and Documentalists. It will be an excellent opportunity to exchange ETD experiences with professionals from different countries, to discuss innovative projects and initiatives and to share successful experiences and up-to-date practices, and to network with colleagues and friends from all over the world.

The concept of Electronic Theses and Dissertations (ETD) has come a long way over the last decades. Providing access to information and scientific research, and enhancing the sharing of knowledge worldwide, ETDs have played a key role in the generation of quality scholarly knowledge. The ETD 2019 conference themes will provide the opportunity to explore the idea of ETDs as a global opportunity.

The conference theme is “Fruits of knowledge”. We hope to encourage the sharing of knowledge, through the submission of proposals and participation in the conference. We aim to address topics such as:

Relevant best practices to support ETDs procedures, innovation and use;
Innovative ETDs;
Changing technological environments;
Legal issues;
ETDs contribution to the development of education, social integration, economic growth and technological progress.
