This event aims to showcase best practice in the handling of theses, especially when that content is transferred to an Open Access environment via the institutional repository. Our speakers will cover key considerations for copyright, data protection and communication with students.

With the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in May 2018 this event will offer an early opportunity to see how one leading institution approached data privacy and repository content in response to the law changes.

We will also see how the British Library’s EThOS service continues to grow and be relevant to a range of researchers, as well as learning about the new shared repository pilot project.


1:30pm – 2pm

2pm – 2.30pm
Dominic Walker: ‘Open by Default: Electronic Theses at LSHTM’

2.35pm – 3pm
Stephen Grace: ‘Baby See, Baby Do: modelling good scholarly communications behaviour with doctoral’

3.05pm – 3.25pm

Zoe Walker-Fagg: ‘GDPR and repositories: making the Apollo repository compliant’

Sara Gould: ‘EThOS and the British Library’s new repository’
