The father of the ETD movement, Professor Ed Fox of Virginia Polytechnic Institute (Virginia Tech), explains the acronym as containing an implicit Boolean ‘OR’: ‘ETs’ <i>OR</i> ‘EDs’ equals ‘ETDs’. This makes for a very convenient shorthand, whereby a digital object which is either an electronic thesis or an electronic dissertation can be referred to as ‘an ETD’.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue32/theses-dissertations" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue32 feature article john maccoll british library jisc oai robert gordon university university of edinburgh daedalus archives bibliographic data born digital cataloguing data database digital library digitisation dissemination ejournal electronic theses eprints file format html infrastructure intellectual property interoperability metadata oai-pmh open archives initiative open source openurl research schema search technology software url virtual research environment web services xml xml schema z39.50 Sun, 07 Jul 2002 23:00:00 +0000 editor 891 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Newsline: News You Can Use http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue31/newsline <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Ariadne presents a brief summary of news and events.</p> </div> </div> </div> <h3 id="JISCCNI_Conference_2002"><a name="1">JISC/CNI Conference 2002</a></h3> <p>Following the success of previous conferences held in London and Stratford The Joint Information Systems Committee and the Coalition for Networked Information are proud to announce the 4th International Conference, that will be held at the Edinburgh Marriott on 26th and 27th June.
