Tallinn University of Technology

The Tallinn University of Technology library, in cooperation with other university libraries, has initiated a campaign to collect research papers "Present to the world!" in order to store them in the TalTechData repository of Tallinn University of Technology research data.

This is the next step in collecting and preserving academic heritage campaign. In the first stage, we focused on collecting research posters.

As an integral part of scientific communication, a conference presentation is undoubtedly a form of academic heritage that deserves to be preserved. By storing them in our digital archive, we can be sure that researchers, students, and all other interested people will have access to the presentations in the future.

It is very easy for the author to add the presentation file to the repository: just add the main metadata and upload the presentation there. All uploaded presentations receive a DOI, which makes it easier to use and refer to them in the future, presentations are protected by a CC license

The University of Tartu Library, Estonian University of Life Sciences and Tallinn University libraries have also joined the campaign to collect as many presentations of researchers and post-graduates of the Estonian universities as possible.

We very much hope that the library's initiative will become a good practice and that after the conferences the presentations will reach our repository. 

Add your presentation(s) or presentations to TalTechData today!

We also continue to collect research posters!
