Announcements

As part of the VCU Libraries' ongoing efforts to support the searchability and stability of VCU's electronic theses and dissertations (ETDs) on Scholars Compass, they have assigned DOIs to each ETD. The DOI (Digital Object Identifier) helps VCU Libraries preserve your work over time with a persistent identifier independent of Scholars Compass. To learn more about DOIs, see: https://www.doi.org/ or visit the main Scholars Compass page for your thesis or dissertation to view your assigned DOI.
