With commencement just around the corner, many students are putting the finishing touches on their final papers, presentations, theses and dissertations. In this post, we’d like to highlight the top 20 most-downloaded Electronic Theses and Dissertations (ETDs) of all time. ETDs in the collection range from 2002 to the present (2014).
If you’d like to view more ETDs, head to the ETD page, or you can see more numbers on the ETD stats page.

Welcome back to our ScholarsArchive Blog! Our goal is to bring you regular updates every two weeks. There is a lot of good news and changes coming up over the next few months, so stay tuned!
Since our last post, we’ve added many new items. For example, check out the latest Journal of East Asian Libraries issue. It includes an article on the MTR library in Hong Kong. This library is termed a “special library” which category includes corporate, law, art, medical, news, architecture firm, financial center libraries and more. Learn how the MTR Corporation Limited utilized a company priority – learning and professional growth – to structure their employee library.
Feel free to peruse the rest of our faculty and student Journals or the scholarly research collection (includes ETDs and faculty research) as well. Our students and faculty regularly submit interesting scholarly works.
Over the coming months we’ll switch content over to a new platform, called Digital Commons. This change means greater world-wide access to content and usage statistics for authors. We’ll keep you updated on these changes over the rest of the year. Look forward to an updated home page, graphical representations of readership and content, and Scholarly Communication information.
If you have any questions about ScholarsArchive, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Until next time, happy researching!
The Church History and Doctrine department has joined ScholarsArchive! Over forty articles have been added to this new collection on topics from the Mormon migration to missionary work, and much more. You’re sure to find something interesting. Enjoy!
Three publications have been added to the new School of Music collection! Click here to read these interesting articles. We’re excited to have more research from the College of Fine Arts and Communications and hope to bring you more soon.
If you’re interested in having your research or presentations added to ScholarsArchive, please email email@example.com and we’ll be happy to help.
The Deseret Language and Linguistic Society Symposium has joined ScholarsArchive Journals! The symposium archives date from 1975 to 2001. Though this symposium is no longer held, the timeless information lives on in ScholarsArchive. Enjoy!
Two new collections have been added to the student section of ScholarsArchive Research! Dr. Gideon Burton’s students do some fantastic work in English 382 — Shakespeare, and now you can read their papers online. Also added are the scholarly papers by graduate students in the Family Nurse Practitioner program in the College of Nursing.
19 faculty and student produced journals are now part of ScholarsArchive! The newly redesigned ScholarsArchvie webpage includes a section just for journals. Look at the changes and additions here.
We recently updated our webpage theme, which improved the navigation between college and department pages. Now get ready for content changes! Soon you’ll see a new, simple welcome page with links to “Research” and “Journals”.
Clicking on “Research” will take you to what has been the main ScholarsArchive gateway. This is where you’ll go to see the research and creative content by BYU faculty and students, arranged by college and department.
“Journals” will take you to BYU student and faculty produced journals. As is the rest of ScholarsArchive, these journals are free and open to the public. We hope you’ll enjoy discovering more of what BYU has to offer!
As you’ve probably noticed, the ScholarsArchive webpage looks a little different with an updated theme. We love it and hope you do, too! The best part is the more intuitive navigation between the college and department pages. Take a look around and tell us what you think!
The colleges and departments with items in ScholarsArchive each have a page with a photo and some text. Some colleges and departments use the text area to describe what’s in their ScholarsArchive collection and others have their unit’s mission statement. If you would like to update what’s on your page, let us know! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
