Tools and assistance for publishing theses, dissertations, books, and Web sites.
Electronic Portfolios (e-Portfolios) are dynamic, developmental spaces representing your professional "self" on the Web. They are becoming standard practice for academics, students, and professionals and typically include examples of skills and achievements, as well as a reflective blog element.
Theses and Dissertations
The Penn State Thesis Template is a software package that helps writers format their thesis to meet the requirements of the Graduate School. Information Technology Services is one of several University departments collaborating on the Electronic Theses and Dissertations (eTD) initiative at Penn State for the electronic submission of dissertations. Penn State is actually part of a larger project known as the Networked Digital Library of Theses and Dissertations (NDLTD).
Consulting services are available to faculty and staff with publishing-related issues, such as text formatting, graphics file format conversion, producing illustrations and figures, or complete production of camera-ready copy. For further information or an appointment, contact Steve Dahm, (814) 865-0821, SteveDahm@psu.edu.
Information Technology Services offers Web publishing space for students, faculty, staff, and departments. A Penn State Access Account and personal Web space are required. See Web Services for information and instructions.
