Abstract


ETD embargoes policies and practices vary widely among institutions. Although institutional websites often make embargo policies quite clear, the practices that support those policies is less so.  Even more interesting, but less obvious, are the history and rational surrounding the development of embargo policies, as well as how exceptional cases and appeals for extensions, redactions, and permanent holds are handled. The Vireo ETD Submission and Management System is a flexible tool that can accommodate variations in ETD embargo policies and practices to support the needs of the institution. In this birds of a feather session, you will have an opportunity to learn the what, why, and how of embargo policy and management (both inside and outside of Vireo) from three different institutions.
