Hello Leti,

We have no special arrangement with ProQuest to make our ETD bitstreams available in their databases.  Only the metadata I guess.  The bitstreams are available for anyone to crawl and harvest though.

Subject: [IRTalk] ETDs on ProQuest

Dear IR community,

can I have an indication if anyone allows ProQuest to harvest open access ETDs from their institutional repositories.
