The University of Maine Electronic Theses and Dissertations (ETD) project is a joint effort of Fogler Library and the Graduate School. Our goals are "to improve graduate education, increase sharing of knowledge, help universities build their information infrastructure, and extend the value of digital libraries," in keeping with those of the Networked Digital Library of Theses and Dissertations, a national initiative of which the University of Maine is a member.

How to submit your electronic thesis or dissertation

Please complete the ETD Submission Approval Form and return it the Graduate School office with an electronic file of your thesis or dissertation, preferably on a CD-ROM.

Information submitted via the form and electronic file will be used to create a bibliographic record in the University of Maine Electronic Theses and Dissertations database. Access to your work will be made available at the level specified on the form.

Questions? Please call the Graduate School at (207) 581-3222 or (207) 581-3217
