I am reposting this email I sent to the NZ-Libs mailing list. 🙂
Victoria University Library has recently digitised the research reports held by the library that were submitted when you completed your Masters of Library and Information Studies.
We would like to make these available openly on the internet through our http://researcharchive.vuw.ac.nz/ Institutional Repository.
Can I ask you to fill in as much of this form as possible: http://library.victoria.ac.nz/library/sites/default/files/thesis_alumni.pdf and return this to me, either by email or in hard copy. Please leave the Research Code field blank.
I should point out that if you have completed a MLIS or MIS in recent years and your Report was submitted electronically then you need not do anything further.
This is for those MLIS reports written from 1995 – 2010.
If you are unsure you can search for your report on the library catalogue http://library.victoria.ac.nz/library/ where there will either be a link to the http://researcharchive.vuw.ac.nz/ which is the open access archive [no action required], a link to the RestrictedArchive which is for staff and students or no link as of yet. If it is either of the latter two options please contact me.
