Electronic Theses and Dissertations (ETDs): Projects in Lieu of Theses

Project In Lieu of Thesis (PILOTs)

In 2009, the IR@UF began to host projects in lieu of thesis and non-thesis terminal projects. These projects fall outside the normal processing of the Graduate Editorial Office and the Libraries work directly with the colleges and departments to load these items. These projects often include non-traditional formatting and/or audio, video or other types of content beyond text.
