ProQuest’s Digital Archiving and Access Program (DAAP) is an easy, cost effective way to digitize the valuable record of graduate research performed at your institution. Development of a digital collection of dissertations and theses saves libraries time, frees up space for important uses, reduces costs for returnable ILL of your institution’s works, and preserves your research legacy.

ProQuest staff talk about ProQuest’s history of preserving and dissemination, the benefits to libraries, and the expertise behind every digitization project.
