Digital Initiatives & Information Technology (DIIT) deposits, or loads, all UCLA electronic theses and dissertations (ETDs) in the UC repository, Merritt, for preservation and insures that embargoed ETDs are not harvested by search engines until the embargo expires. Digital Initiatives and Information Technology (DIIT) Library Web Services staff are technical support for the load process.

Before loading into Merritt, ETD's are processed by:

  • creating an accurate embargo end date
  • providing a means for staff from the UCLA Graduate Division to see the status of any single ETD, which includes:
    • date deposited in Merritt
    • embargo end date
    • status of cataloging in the UCLA Library Catalog
  • providing a way to generate statistics on ETDs for an arbitrary date range
