More exposure to your work. ETDs enable graduate students to present
their research to a broader audience. Authors may allow their thesis or
dissertation to be freely assessable to the world.
Expanded creative options: The creative possibilities are expanded, since more vivid diagrams, maps, hyperlinks, audio, video, animation, etc. can be incorporated into the document.
Cost savings and efficiency: The dissertations do not have to be microfilmed before publishing which reduces the time before you report becomes accessible online.
