The project will develop an e-theses repository, entirely compliant with EThOS and designed to support the easy deposit and ready exchange of data. The project will expand and enhance the EThOS Toolkit by addressing key institutional administrative questions.  It will explore in detail the entire process of submission and handling from examination entry form through to the upload of the final thesis. The project will chart the varied workflows of students, of examiners and of the Examinations Office, school offices and the Bibliographic Services team.
