WKU Libraries joined the Networked Digital Library of Theses and Dissertations (ndltd.org) as an additional way to increase access to the University’s research at the graduate level. The NDLTD catalog provides an additional discovery service that supports the international outreach for disseminating scholary research at WKU. Among the member institutions are Yale University, Rice, major state universities (Texas, NC, Tennessee), and institutions in Sweden, Kenya, United Kingdom, Zimbabwe, and many more. The platform that allows our theses to be harvested for additional databases is TopSCHOLAR®.
Through these initiatives, and others, we support a more robust and open scholarly communications system that allows the world to view our intellectual assets.
