Digital Publishing Services

Electronic Theses and Dissertations (ETDs) & Other Publications

Gleeson Library staff collaborate with departments and scholars across the university to facilitate publication of electronic theses and dissertations (ETDs). We also digitize USF print publications, migrate existing content to the USF Scholarship Repository, and publish work online. We would be happy to consult with you regarding your digital publishing needs.

To support digital publishing, Gleeson Library staff:

  • Help USF departments and programs set up electronic submissions to the USF Scholarship Repository

  • Advise all works be made open access, in accordance with the USF Open Access Policy, but provide embargo options when necessary

  • Scan existing paper copies of past theses and dissertations and publish them to the USF Scholarship Repository

  • Offer technical support, in collaboration with our repository vendor, bepress
