The goals of the UNB program are those of the broad ETD initiative and include: for universities to learn how to unlock the potential of their intellectual property and productions; for graduate education to improve through more effective sharing; for technology and knowledge sharing, as graduate research results become more readily and more completely available; for graduate students to learn about electronic publishing and digital libraries, applying that knowledge as they engage in their research and build and submit their own ETD; for universities to learn about digital libraries, as they collect, catalog, archive, and make ETDs accessible to scholars worldwide.
