ETD Symposium is organised for the first time in the Indian subcontinent. This will give to the library and information professionals of this region and neighbouring countries an opportunity to attend the international meeting, which is of high relevance to all. The occasion will moreover reinforce NDLTD’s objective to promote Electronic Theses & Dissertations (ETDs) activities in the developing countries. The professionals will have the opportunity to interact with delegates and prominent speakers from other countries and learn about the best practices being followed and advocated by them.

ETD 2015 will provide an international forum where professionals and practitioners will deliberate upon the challenges and problems they encounter while setting up ETD Archives.
