eTHESIS: ETSU's Electronic Honors Thesis Repository
ETSU hosts an electronic repository for theses submitted to the Honors College. The repository was created as
a collaboration between The Honors College and Sherrod Library. The repository uses a software interface that supports virtually all forms of electronic media.
After an Honors Thesis is accepted into the repository, it can be accessed through the repository webpage (http://dc.etsu.edu/honors/) or by a search of ETSU's Sherrod Library Millennium catalog. All electronic theses, except those with a voluntary embargo, can be viewed by the general public. As such, theses maintain an academic immortality rather than irrelevancy on a shelf!
