Member Story: UT Southwestern deploys Vireo for ETD management

UT Southwestern LogoStudents in the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences at UT Southwestern now submit electronic theses or dissertations (ETDs) online using Vireo, resulting in a more streamlined process for submitting and managing ETDs.

The Graduate School is one of three degree-granting schools at UT Southwestern; each school processes ETDs independently from one another. As the largest ETD contributor, the Graduate School was selected as the first of the three schools to test and implement Vireo. The Medical School and the School of Health Professions will work with the Library to implement Vireo after the system receives an upgrade later this year.
