 +====== Correcting theses and dissertations metadata on ScholarWorks pages: ======

 +**These instructions work for correcting metadata for all Masters theses and for dissertations in the Open Access Dissertations series. ​  For errors with the  dissertations we get through Proquest email: [[disspub@proquest.com]]. ​ When emailing Proquest, do not mention ScholarWorks,​ Digital Commons, or Bepress. ​ Instead find the incorrect data on the Proquest website and report that instead. ​ Otherwise Proquest support will bounce you over to Bepress support, who will just bounce you back to Proquest support.**
