Upgrade to ProQuest Digital Dissertations

This is an update about the ProQuest Digital Dissertations™ (PQDD) migration to the ProQuest platform.

Support for Subject Subsets:
Not only will customers with one of the larger subject subsets be able to move to PQDT, but other customers who want to subscribe to smaller, full text subsets -- like Medicine or Agriculture -- will be able to do so as well.

Support for Open Access Dissertations and Theses:
Beginning in the fall of 2006, graduate authors who publish with ProQuest/UMI will have the option of publishing their work on an open access basis under our Expanded Publishing with Open Access (EPOA) service. As they become available, those EPOA titles will be added to the database for free full-text download for all PQDT users.

Search Enhancements:

Enhancements include the ability to limit by material type (dissertations or theses) and improvements to searching by university name.
