Abstract : The Networked Digital Library of Theses and Dissertations (NDLTD) is an international organization dedicated to promoting the adoption, creation, use, dissemination, and preservation of electronic theses and dissertations (ETDs). NDLTD supports electronic publishing and open access to scholarship in order to enhance the sharing of knowledge worldwide. Its goals are: •To be the leading international organization for promotion of ETDs worldwide. •To provide useful and innovative resources, standards, and technology for development of ETD programs. •To encourage institutions of higher education to use NDLTD resources and participate in NDLTD activities. Through the above activities, NDLTD supports institutions of higher education to develop their own ETD programs by adopting the submission, collection, and archiving of electronic theses and dissertations into their own repositories and into international digital libraries and repositories. It supports the Open Access movement and raises the awareness at institutions of higher education of the benefits of ETDs, including: •the facilitation of the writing process for students, encouraging innovation, •the increased speed of sharing research methods and results, •the improved distribution of research methods and results (including related data and multimedia forms) through electronic publication and archiving, leading to improved graduate education and scholarship, and •the reduced costs of printing, processing, storage, and access. The poster presents the main characteristics and activities of NDLTD, including the community, the conference series, the awards, and the Global ETD Search portal. The poster also present a timeline covering the major events of the NDLTD history since 1987, showing the key role of ETDs since the early days of grey literature.
