To coincide with the 125th anniversary of the University of Tasmania a large scale project was undertaken to digitise and upload approximately 3500 Higher Degree Research (HDR) print theses into the Library Open Repository.
This poster articulates the Library Open Repository’s role in promoting open scholarship through the global discoverability and accessibility of the University of Tasmania’s thesis collection. The process to digitise a large collection is outlined as well as the challenges faced to provide accessibility to the newly discoverable collection. The poster was presented at the international Open Repositories 2017 Conference held in Brisbane, Australia.
