The dissertations available through UMI are only available as licensed materials and so they cannot be added as PDFs to your website. The Libraries are working to support open access to all research materials from UF and so many dissertations and theses are openly available online in the Institutional Repository (http://ufdc.ufl.edu/ufirg). The Libraries are also conducting a retrospective dissertation digitization project to digitize dissertations currently only available in print: http://digital.uflib.ufl.edu/procedures/copyright/retro_diss_scan/DDDCA.htm This is a long-term project in process for all dissertations. Please let us know if you would like us to send permissions forms to your program’s former graduate students or please consider featuring a link to this program so that the dissertations can soon be openly and freely available online from your website for the world.
