I submitted my dissertation to my Faculty but I have not yet received a link for my dissertation on the online repository nor can I find my dissertation on WIRedSpace either
Answer:Have you graduated yet (only once graduation is confirmed may an ETD be published) The library uploads thesis and dissertations on WireDspace after a student has graduated. It is quite a lengthy process (with the Library as the end point), after graduation, the faculty offices sends thesis (unbound and digital copies) to Central Record Office, from CRO they are then sent to the library. Make sure that you’ve spoken to your School and Faculty offices before contacting the Library. Should your digital copy have any problems (file not opening etc.) the process will be severely delayed.
