About the
WVU Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Graduate Seminar
WVU has successfully required the electronic submission of all theses and dissertations since 1998.  This seminar will provide an overview of the WVU ETD program, highlight the submission requirements, and include a demonstration of electronic file conversion to Adobe Acrobat PDF and other formats, along with technical tips for success.  The potential for inclusion of multimedia elements, development and promotion of graduate portfolios, and discussion of new authoring and research Web venues will also be explored.  This will be of great interest to graduate level students, faculty and staff.


JOHN HAGEN is the ETD Program Coordinator and Institutional Repository Manager for the
University Libraries at WVU.  He has been the technical reviewer for all thesis and dissertation submissions, and has provided counsel on intellectual property and submissions issues since 1989.

KATHY FLETCHER is the Manager of Training Services for the Office of Information Technology Customer Support at WVU.  She has been providing computer support and training for WVU faculty, staff, and students since 1985.
