BEYOND THE LIBRARY @ ISU

DR Readership Map - ISU Theses & Dissertations

This map shows real-time access and readership of ISU dissertations and theses available in the Digital Repository.  It's a great visualization of the reach your thesis or dissertation will have!

After graduation, your thesis / dissertation will be added to the DR!  In addition, you can begin building your research & scholarly works portfolio now in the DR and especially its Selected Works gallery. What can you include?

  • Your journal articles & manuscripts
  • Conference proceedings, presentations, posters
  • Your artwork, creative / technical designs, and more!

Just think how spiffy your portfolio will look to your profs and prospective employers! You can continue to update after you've graduated as well. See this brochure for more info!

WRITING SUPPORT @ ISU LIBRARY

A big part of your life as a graduate student or post doc will be spent on writing! Here are links to relevant resources and services at the Library, at ISU, and available on the web.
