Archiving and Publishing Student Dissertations

UAS Neubrandenburg’s Digital Library

Information about Archiving and Publishing Student Dissertations

UAS Neubrandenburg’s Digital Library was developed together with the University Library Rostock as part of the state project ‘Digitale Bibliothek MV’ (Digital Library MV). It gives students at the University the chance to publish successfully completed dissertations that had been produced electronically via the publication server, at no extra cost. The dissertations that have been published are also listed in our library catalogue.

By providing student dissertations in the Digibib, UAS Neubrandenburg is supporting the concept of Open Access, according to which there should be free access to academic information.
